    I don't think a small financial commitment from members using the various reptile websites is a bad thing. Websites don't operate on zero cost.

    There was a time when Herp Trader had significant traffic through it. It wasn't all that long ago either.

    Agreed Wally.

    I would not have a problem paying any reptile site top dollar, if I knew my initial payment to the site was going to get paid back after the sale had gone through successfully. But with the a*se fallen out of the hobby, the cost of up-keep etc and the droves of disrespectful penny thieves that still try to drop your original asking price, is just not a profitable option anymore.

    Up until last year I was buying most of my 140g rats from my local pet store for $7.20 each (which I thought was ok, not great but ok). Then Petbarn took over and started selling THE SAME RATS for $17.50 each!! Same brand, same size, same colour, same packaging.... More than double the original price. Disgusting!
