I think that someone who knows about animals (reptiles specifically) can tell when a pet store is being compasionate and when they are neglecting. When I saw Boulder I immediately knew that someone had done that to him and dropped him off and I felt soooo sorry for him. Once you play with him you realize he deserves so much better than that! I'm glad that he found Peter to take such great care of him!
I commend you for all of your compasion and I can understand how this is. I have never rehabilitated reptiles but I have rehabilitated horses in the past that have had their backs eaten out b/c the owner kept two horses in a chicken pen and fed them a can of dog food each night...so of course when the bigger one gets hungry the smaller one gets eaten....I am a firm believer that if you will neglect or mistreat an animal intentionally then, you will one day do the exact same to a human.
You are such a good person to take in animals like that!
People who show compassion towards animals like you do are some of the best people in the world.

:I hear you BigT. The same thing happened with Boulder. The person who burned him didn't want him anymore so they just dropped him off at a petstore. The petstore did not want to spend the money on the vet bills for an animal they did nothing to and I do not blame them. When I contacted the petstore and said he needed to see a vet and I would pay for it they were very happy to spend the time to drive him their etc and seemed to care about him. Now, if someone just casually walked into the store to look around and saw a huge Uromastyx with blisters all over his back their first thought would be: "Man, what did this petstore do to this animal." Anyway, glad to hear your taking him in and I hope he does well.
