In Reply to: How can you say that normal balls aren't cared for well..... posted by SNReptiles on May 13, 2003 at 00:12:53:

:for the most-part? Normal balls to morph breeders such as myself are worth gold, hell, more than gold. They get the same attention and are treated just as well as my snakes that are worth 500x as much as they are. If you want to rant about something, rant about W/C balls and how they are cared for because CB balls are prized possessions in this hobby/business. My morphs don't get condos while my normals live in Nike boxes under my bed. Each and every snake has his own enclosure which is chosen to fit him, regardless of worth. I bought a Vision cage from Russ Lockenwitz(won't buy Visions from anyone but him because of the service I received when dealing with him) to test it out and see if I liked them better for my balls than the racks that I built that house my other balls. A normal female currently resides in it, not one of my 10 or so morphs who are all worth way more than she is. She is my biggest ball, so she gets the biggest cage. I would like to know where your information is coming from that says that normal balls are being treated badly. Please post this information and I will be more than happy to read it with an open mind and take it into consideration. For now, I think your remarks are unsubstantiated and not thought-out very well.

::I am definitly not new to anything but breeding, I have donee my fair share of reearch and question asking, I have owned more animals than I have time to count, and aggreed I don't know everything, but noone does! I don't know as much as the pros, but I was just stating my opinion that normal balls are over priced and undercared for most of the time. That was just me venting, I am not saying I am better than anyone, or that I know enough to become the best! But I am just saying care of the animals ahould come BEFORE money! I am not trying to make you applaud me, just saying how I feel about todays "system".
