VENOMOIDS vs. IMPORTS

I couldn't agree more - I am so sick of hearing about VENOMOID rants when half of these supposed "legit" herpers rape & pillage wild populations whenever they get the opppurtunity to make fifty cents. Most will flat-out lie about the origin of the animal & tell an unexpecting customer that it is a C.b. when it is fresh off the boat. Looks good enough to be a C.b. animal - right.? The whole point in captive propagation is to supply the demand for animals through concentrated breeding efforts. Most of these "nosey" non-venomoiders are low-down shady importers who could care less about the health of the animals (or their keepers). If you don't like Venomoids - don't buy them - I know I don't buy your imported crap!! I don't complain to you about the half-dead animals on your tables. There are exceptions - rare species & oddball mutations that wouldn't make it in the wild anyways. If someone wants to spend an extra $300 on an animal to have it Venomoid that is their right to do so!! It is far better than spending $30,000 in hospital bills & legal fines. What if there are children that live in the house w/ venomous animals? You say no VENOMOIDS - I say no wild-caught animals. There are exceptions - rare species & oddball mutations that wouldn't make it in the wild anyways. I guarantee more animals die from being plucked out of the wild than animals being operated on to make them safe captives. I say shame on you for trying to sell that parasite infested crap - leave it in the wild where it belongs & quite making yourselves look like "know-it-all" nazis!!!! I keep both hot & venomoids (10+ yrs.) & refuse to believe that removing the venom glands from an animal is the same as filing down a dog's teeth!! Ludacris comparison. Stay out of others business or someone may aim for your glass house. P.S. Keep your parasite & bacteria infested crap away from my table - yuk!!
