    I personally dont think any animal should be sold in pet shops. If reptiles are being sold in pet shops, I dont think I would mind as long as husbandry is kept adequate and the animal get proper care from staff that know what they are doing.
    I think it is good for the industry in terms of getting more people educated about reptiles but personally I think if you are going to sell them, they should come with a good care sheet.

    LOL stupidest statement of the year
    My local petshops suggest heat rocks without thermos they are safe
    they sell people with waterdragons 2ft exo-terras and heat rocks...


    I purchased a gecko in mcdonalds carpark....this steve guy wouldnt let me go till he told me how to look after it i love how they suggest us private keepers/dealers are shady...

    They assume petshops take animal welfare over profit....just look at fighter fish....look at the enclosures they sell tiny expensive ones they make huge profits from need to upgrade 10x during an animals life...

    I convinced my parents to get me a snake over 10 years ago until the reptile guy at kellyville pets told them to house a adult snake they would need to buy this enclosure with fake rocks, logs etc and the enclosure alone would be $1500....i got my first snake 4 years ago when i turnt 18 and got it myself...

    why every other Morelia except a Diamond.

    I know interstate stores have done this for a while with no problems but I don't understand why a pet store has all the regulation and cost but the 'amateur' breeder/seller can do so without the cost or regulation and not declare the revenue for tax?

    how many stores actually sell reptiles interstate? Will we see Snake Ranch now open a store?

    from my understanding..which is limited..... "amateur" breeder/seller is classed as a hobbyist and a hobby is tax free till it hit a certain $ amount($50,000 i think)..... that covers ALL hobbies

    i was thinking that if they put all the reptiles that can be found in the wild locally whats to stop someone that owns a pair from poaching and saying they breed them just to make a quick buck and sell to a pet shop, maybe thats why they left diamonds, eastern beardies and eastern water dragons off the list.

    Unfortunately with how slow Blue tongues take to breed I can see them now being a huge target for poachers :(

    it's easy to say vote with your wallet but newbies don't have the networks to inform them of good /bad shops so these people will be the ones to wear the brunt of bad shops so bad shops will continue whereas people in our position who have some experience or friends with advice wont get caught.
     
  19. Will they be tolerating mixed blood jags, such as jungle jags?
