I live in the Palm Springs area. I would love to attend a meeting, but it is REALLY far to travel on a week night! Not only do I wish I could go to meetings, but there are no local Rep vets, no Reps only stores and I can't find a local breeder of Suriname Red-tails to save my life!!! Does anyone know why the desert cities are in the dark ages??? I am sure there are a large number of people in my area that are interested in reptiles!! help me!!!
