I appreciate that there are many differences between the USA & the UK, but perhaps you should take note of what is happening overhear. In the UK virtual all reptile shows/Expos have been cancelled due to the activityís of the antis, so far this year we have only had one small event take place.

This combined with the recent events of the authorityís seizing animals without any justification, people are leaving reptile keeping in droves. After all, it is meant to be a hobby, an enjoyable way of passing your spare time. Recent events have ordinary decent reptile keepers running scared, with good reason. We all know that next time it could be any one of us knocked up in the middle of the night to have all you animals seized.

Today in the UK our very existence is in the balance, donít make the same errors that we have.
