Re: At a loss for words...

Just caught the tail end of a news report on it. If you currently own one of them you will be able to keep them. That good because they would have to kill me before i would give up my Yellow Anaconda. So i figure i got about a month to try and get a Granite Burm. lol

I find this to be the exact same fight as breed banning with regards to dogs. There is so much BAD PRESS out there, those of you who love the big snakes must find ways to get the GOOD PRESS out there too!!

I'd do it, but I don't think me and my 4' cornsnake will make the right impression!!!
my 5' bull snake would most likely he's pretty big XD but other than that i got no big snake's

Re: At a loss for words...

I've done news shows before. I actually went in with one of the rescues I volunteer at and we brought in a big one eyed burm, a couple of boas, a bearded dragon, and a medium sized tortoise. The camera man adopted the bearded dragon for his kid(s) on the spot.

I'd love to have a T+ burm but there's no way I can get the funds to get one right now. At least I have my albino burms. And I'm saving every little bit possible for a purple albino retic before they get banned too.

What if you currently own a burm and need to move to a different state? Does that mean you wouldn't be able to move your snake with you??

Can't complain with that. How was the show itself?

That's a great question I would be interested in solving, since the Mrs. & I are looking to move out-of-state in the next couple years and of course I have Lucy (BCI) to worry about.

We were hoping to move to someplace more animal-friendly. By then, the only place that'll fit that description will be Brazil! (Oh wait, that wouldn't be too bad..)

Turning it in, that's no fun. Not much push for average people to go hunt them. A nice 20 foot burm skin for a jacket on the other hand, oh yeah.

Re: At a loss for words...

It depends on the show. One show had this ghetto woman news anchor and the whole show was spent laughing at her. The other one went really well. Everybody was handling the animals. There were crew lining up after the segment to hold them. It was great.

Boas are on the new list that Rooney is proposing.

Firstly mikey.. yeah.. those idiots got what they deserved...
More importantly, the people who are passionate about their animals and actually give a **** just got slapped in the face... I know a few people who I greatly respect who are in tears right now...
Your attitude towards this matter has eradicated any sliver of desire to meet you, or speak to you in the future. You've always been cold to people, on here, RC and a few other forums but never an ***... and the information you've given has always been useful, although sometimes in the douchiest way possible...
