I have been to the show in hamburg. I also agree with you. Vendors and breeder should be more responsible. There has to be another way than banning large reotiles all together. That is what I'm getting at.

I have been taking in reptiles for many years. I'm not a breeder or a dealer. I Just recently got more involed. It seems like more and more reptiles are being neglected and or abandoned. So I'll play my part to help educate people, take in unwanted reptiles, and relocate them to good homes.

I,m not sure what the best answer is for this situation. I would like to help find it however Without banning large reptiles.

How about this all large reptiles must be micro chipped and registered with in 30 days of purchase.Kinda like dogs and cats.

That would defer a lot of people from getting large reptiles cause it's not fast and easy. It will also hold them resonsible for the reptile. I think having it chipped and on record will stop alot of reptiles from being released or abandoned.

Also make the dealers and shops keep the info. Who they sold these animals to and how many they sold to each person and all together in a given period of time.

If the buyer knows they will be some what monitored. That alone will make them think twice on a quick purchase.

If they do not register the reptile and get caught heavy fines. that will also defer the quick buyer from purchasing a large reptile also.

what do you think alot better than banning them form everybody.
