Depends on what exactly you are looking for. After all, I'm going to hazard a guess that all of us herpers were young at some point. Today's herpers are by far a lot younger, it seems, than in my day. And, they are a lot more knowlegable as well. The wealth of information out there is almost mind-boggling. However, it is up to them to fliter this myriad of info and try to apply what what fact versus, well you know... I might suggest that you set up at a herp expo and solicit some information from the hundreds of young up and coming herpetologist there. Good luck.
: : Naturally we help it;). Seriously, I think we are like most age groups. Some buy them to be cool,, and then start to be involved because they love the animals, some never start to care abbout the animals, and some, like me, have always just liked the critters.We do face challenges, though- space, since its hard to get a parent to let me h0ouse them out of my room, $$$$ if we live in area where there are no jobs, and parental dislike of the hobby.That, an a girl seeing mice on the counter when she comes to visit wrecks your chances of a girlfriend for years, as she will tell everyone about said mice.Ahh well, the cost of herps.
