My goodness... I don't think I was being militant at all... I actually think I was very nice about the whole thing... I answered their questions and recommended it be released. I'm not saying that this country treats it's wild turtles great, all I was saying was that it is a wild caught animal and that I beleive it should stay wild. As far as what I said about it may not do well... I did not suggest it would immediately drop dead, but wild caught turtles can tend to be shyer and more skittish that cb, also they may have a much harder time beginning to eat in captivity... I'm not swaying he can't do it, but there is something to the idea that it may struggle. All I'm saying is that I don't ever recommend removing wild turltes for pets when there are PLENTY of captive bred ones available, why mes with the einvironment in even a small way when you can spend the extra cash for one that was cb? I'm not trying to start a fire-storm here... and I felt like I was plenty helpful and polite about their questions, I just recommended they release it. Sorry if that recommendation offends anyone, but I think you'll find that many in the turtle community support cb programs over wc.
