if someone wants to get rid of a reptile that badly that they'll part with it for free you have to think there is a reason for that. Can just imagine "Free to good home, 'honey' jungle, 'slightly' cage defensive" hahah

Soon there'll be...."Wanted free rodents"
gave away a free gecko once, it was then sold 5-6 months later for market value.
well it was theirs to do what they want with it, but they should have gave it away if they don't want it anymore.
I often give away big male cichlid on another forum, when they get too big to breed without killing the females...they often pop up on gum tree for redonkulous amounts of money.General Rule 5 -Posts must be meaningful and not waste the time of other site users.

If something goes wrong down the track, will these people be starting "free Vetrinary care needed" threads? Lol
I've got freebies but I'd rather wait and offer to people who seem to know whatthere doing not give to beggars

People that openly ask for free reptile should get nothing IMO. the word parasite comes to mind!

I was thinking the same thing except I was gonna be a smart bottom and place my own smart mouth wanted advert. Something along the lines of all things wanted for free, lint and belly fluff included.
I want everything for free... dont you all? I'll take all things that are free, reptiles, rodents, cash, advice... just no smacks in the mouth, all full up on them LMAO.
But seriously, wt fudge?3 x childreni, 1 x spotted, 1 x Georgetown Stimsoni, 1 x Murray Darling, 1 x Central Beardie and from the 5/5/13 2 Shingleback babies I'm here to help, not judge..like others enjoy doing MAD MINI WOMAN! Hot bricks ROCK!
I live in a very transient place with a lot of military personnel who get posted all of the time. These people come to Darwin and see snakes for sale on every bill board and pet shop and think cool I’ll have 1 of those. 2 or 3 years later they get posted or get out and move back to a state like TAS or WA where they aren't able to import the reptile. Some people find it to difficult to sort out import/export permits and I have heard plenty of stories in Darwin of people letting their reptiles go in the wild.
Therefore you opinionated narrow minded people who call people like me parasites trying to do the right thing all round should have a little think before they gob off.
I won't even go into the environmental effects of reptiles being released into an area they aren't indigenous too. Anyone seen the effects of the Burmese Python in Florida?????????
So to all those that have something more to say that is negative are you really sure of the facts or are jumping on the peer pressure group wagon and pigeon holing people?
Any reptiles I have acquired as a freebie have a nice enclosure made by me in my living room where they will stay for the rest of their lives.
It seems a lot of people on this forum love to jump on band wagon and go the hack without knowing all of the details. e.g. (the poor 13 year old kid that was bitten by his Children’s Python)
