Howdy peeps. Ya know, I’ve been watching a lot of things going on in the herp industry. I attend a lot of shows when I can and I take pride in our ability to keep herps. But what I’ve seen lately really gets to me and it’s the lack of organization in fighting for our rights.
Our main defense is USARK. But, I’d really like to know exactly whats going on in that organization?
Heres what I see in updates:
Hey, were going to be at this or that show. Come give us money!
Hey, were going to this show now…come give us money!
Hey folks,were fighting for your rights by attenting herp shows and shaking hands and smiling. Come give us money!
Uh oh…bad stuff is happening. We need more money!
Meanwhile, I aint seeing any listing of what this money has gone to? Have you? What have they done so far for us?
This Andrew Wyatt guy, he seems nice and all…but what qualifies him to represent us? I tried doing some homework, but I really cant find much of anything about the guy. Does he have a degree? Is it in law, biology, zoology…?

Next- Kingsnake…I’m ashamed of you. You have been long time members of the herp scene and have supported keepers for a long time. Why aint you guys doing something? I’m sure you gotta be making some money and can put that towars fighting for keepers rights! Otherwise, you don’t have a following when we all lose our rights. Whats the point then?
I know I have my issues with usark, but since that’s all were screwed with, might as well use em’. Since you guys aint doing nothing for us, then how come you aint trying to support the one group who is?
Were all losing our rights because nobody want to do the right thing.
