I really don't want to get anyone in trouble. My biggest issue with the pet store at this point isn't that they are selling undersized turtles, but that they are giving improper care instructions. When I was talking to the employee about what I needed for my babies, he told me essentially to just get a fish bowl with a rock sitting up somewhere, like you see in all the movies. Obviously these people are dealing in animals they don't know how to care for, so most of the babies aren't going to make it. I guess you could call it an ethics issues. Do I decide not to get the people in trouble, or do what I can to help the RES's?

Minor issue. Dont call teh feds on them.
:Best bet is to bring it to there attention.

:Calling the feds just makes it worse for us legal dealers. Heck, im 100% legal and I have been having problems recently, along with a few others I know. Leave the feds out of the industry as much as possible, unless you see something major (ie miss treated animals, smuggling endagered stuff etc).
