Good thread seeing everyones different opinions on the matter.
I think some are slightly jealous that they don't own an exotic which turns them against the people that do. I believe if the snake is kept in the right conditions by a somewhat experienced herper there is no problem morally, it's just the legality of it all that turns some away, just like tekno and a few other mentioned with steroids and illicit drugs.
Seriously though, I would report anyone who offered me anything exotic, especially a milk snake or a chameleon. Let me repeat that, I would report ANYONE who OFFERed ME anything exotic, especially A MILK SNAKE OR A CHAMELEON.
Man, I would kill for a pet anaconda... Damn Australian laws! but suppose its for the better, what is it that happened in the states, there is a large population of I think Burmese Pythons or something that have overtaken many wetlands and are thriving.. Wouldn't want that in our waterways. But I really want a Anaconda.. haha
So anyone in Brissy wanting to go on a hunt for a reticulated python, try Boondall wetlands :shock:. A few possible escape's from the airport may have found there way down there. . . . only a rumour I cannot and will not confirm. . . but I would not dismiss it.
