: I can't be the only one getting screwed at these shows. I think that reptile expo's are where unscrupulous dealers go to sell there non-feeding snakes. Half of the animals that I have purchased, later died from starvation. I for one won't be buying anymore animals at these events.


So Tom,

What would be your alternative? Try to get legal permits to hunt states that do allow legal collecting of north American species and put up with some of the hassles of those states and take a chance that the wild caught herps would do any better than the ones you are buying at the shows. Or try a known breeder and pay the price of shipping and problems that is going on with the shipping of reptiles at this time. What would you say to some of the best known breeders that DO sale at reptile shows which seems to be a mainstream situation these days. If it's a question of monies you are paying for those animals, think what they would cost from a well known breeder and shipping charges plus the legality of some animals being shipped across state lines. And then are some of the species that you are buying is problem feeders in the first place? I think so. (My opinion though)
Anymore input on this?
