I agree with you 100%, Danny. But damnit...they're cheap, quick and delicious!! :-D

>>I picked up a common snapper from Utah Fish and Game about 3 years ago. It was the most grotesquely obese turtle I have ever seen. Rolls of fat hung out of his shell. You did'nt have to be a reptile person to know this was'nt normal.
>>It was of course perfect for my show. I named him Oscar. The kids immediately guessed the diet he had been raised on.
>>At the same time grateful parents appreciated the don't eat hotdogs every meal message. LOL
>>Being so obese every time I picked him up he would express his maleness to which I would respond,"Yep he's a boy."
>>Being totally raised on hotdogs he refused chicken, perch, crawdeads, and rodents. I was stubborn and knew with his fat that he should be able to go a year without eating. I refused to give in to hotdogs. He died about 4 months later.
>>I'm sure he would have lived longer if he had remained at the home where the confiscation occured. Eating hotdogs but with little external stress he would have lived longer but probably not much. He was doomed the day some careless person purchased him without doing any homework.
>>Bottom line there isn't one species hotdogs are healthy for. D.C.
