Dennis, from Norther Virginia Reptile Rescue says it better than I think I can:

"As a large reptile rehabilitation and rescue organization, we often receive letters from potential guardians concerning the restrictions against breeding and reselling of companion animals, or how we feel about the mass import and sale of wild caught herps. Allow me to take a few moments to address those comments....

....We see your breeding mistakes that end up as "cheapo" animals at the reptile trade shows: the kinked-spine snakes from improper incubation; the non feeding lizard and toad eaters; the scaleless, eyeless, colorless animals you think you can profit from if only you "tweak" them a bit more here and there. Or the Sunday afternoon half-price specials so you can go home with fewer animals.

No, we don't worry too much about how you keep your animals - except for perhaps the multitudes of shoeboxes where the animals have no enrichment or exercise and are nothing more than breeding machines. We do, however, worry about the hundreds of animals that you sell to your customers with only profit as your motive and greed as your guide."
