Just to totally clarify my position. I am in no way saying anything negative about what we do with herps. I am not bashing anyone for what they do EXCEPT for those that pull the "I AM BETTER THAN YOU" thing. I felt it was about time someone opened the discussion and maybe their eyes.

The issue I brought up about how someone may have euthanized offspring actually happened more than once. I am not saying that practice was bad, in fact it may have proven more humane. I was using those instances (although extreme) to show that "stuff" happens.

To those herpers out there that have truely never bought, sold, imported, exported, killed or have a herp die, caught from the wild a herp, I say congratulations. You probably have a right to complain about what the rest of us are doing and I apologize if you feel I have subjected you to undue scrutiny. You may be in the hobby strictly for the hobby. To the rest of you, it is time you be honest with yourselves. DO NOT be hypocritical.
