How can one of the leading experts in a field that is as limited as croc knowledge, be charged with improper care of crocs.
The people charging him NO NOTHING about crocs.
There probably isn't 5 people in the world with more knowledge about croc husbandry and vet care than Terry Cullen.
Terry Cullen should be the one writing the laws on how to take care of crocs. NO ONE who works for USFWS, MADDOC, MPD, or the MDA's office can tell Terry Cullen the first thing about crocs.
Most of the AZA zoos in the country have asked for advice FROM Terry Cullen. Terry Cullen invented the AZA croc school to further educate fledgling croc keepers.
In my mind if Terry Cullen says this is the best way to keep this animal then it is the best way. Did any of these agencies
inquire about the hx of any of these animals. Every animal is different especially when kept for long periods in captivity.
In fact a lot of "problem" crocs in Terry's possesion came from AZA facilities.
Right now the Reptile Nation is so emboiled with this ridiculous
fight with the govt that we have allowed a truly remarkable man
to be crucified.
I do educational reptile shows. 75% of my income is earned out of my home state of TX. So the python law will affect me more than most. And I support python breeders. But truthfully I'm not a big conservationist. And python breeders are'nt either.
Terry Cullen is a croc conservationist. He is involved in croc conservation all over the world. If you love crocs he is one of the good guys.
I have'nt seen one word in defense from USARK I have'nt seen one volunteer auction from Kingsnake.
We're afraid, I get it. Guilty by association.
What if they come to my house?
It's shameful. D.C.
