>>Releasing into the wild is very different than adopting out, although I am not arguing that pet dumping does not happen. It does take an investment in time, money and emotions to care for a reptile long enough for it to grow up to a large size. The connection that pet owners have to their pets is a powerful motivator to do the right thing.

People dump 12 year old dogs that they've raised from pups all the time. And people also dump pricy purebred dogs all the time. Neither investment cost nor ivestment time keep people from dumping animals when those animals become inconvenient.
