dont mean to start a war (i have both wc and cbb animals--though a couple of my wc ones were sold to me as cb : )), but "overpriced" captive bred ones??? Lol! James was selling cbb babies last month for cheaper than the majority of wc ones out there!
Now I sell mine for a lot more because I believe that people should support the captive breeding of animals OVER the importation of them (especially with all of the negative press the reptile market is getting). Especially breeders--support other breeders! I also believe that the extra money paid for a cbb animal often saves in vet and med costs (parasites, mites, dehydration, etc etc). Besides the fact they tend to be more docile and the survival ratio is much higher.
To each his own, but I will always pay the extra money for a cared for cbb animal of any species over a shaky import.
And you sound like you have experience, for most people getting their first frilled, cbb is definately the way to go.
And right now there are plenty of wc frillies on the market to give a wide variety of genetics for breeding. There is certainly no dire need for fresh genes. It seems that there are very few people breeding these guys to begin with.
no offense, just my 2 cents
: I have been working with wild caught animals for along time but thanks for the advice. If we dont support the pulling of wild animals out of habitat then where would all of these C.B.B beauties come from? I though Cites was there to worry about that stuff. That is why they impose quotas. I would much rather take my chances with wild caught animals then purchase overpriced C.B.B animals. I did not want to turn this into a large debate so I will say thanks for your advice and I have worked with frilleds many years ago but have just had the urge to sway into them again and also stick with my true passion "Chameleons". Again thanks for your advice you seem to be doing real well with them Frilleds.
