>>I ask you this, Kingsnake and you preach that we ARE a community, but shouldn't the community be aware of not just diseases on our animals buy also diseased breeders that sully our hobby and hurt those that share our passion of herps? Just curious.
>>

Aware of the diseases yes, but there is little documented about this that I could find short of forum posts on a variety of forums. I can speak to the stress because I have seen the exact condition across a variety of species, including kings and corns, but also pythons and boas. Rescue shows you a lot of different things, but the most amazing thing is the adjustment stress visible on some animals. I spent a bit of time trying to look into this, but as I stated, unless it is under some other name, very little is documented. As to calling out breeders, you have been here probably longer than the 11 years I have put into the site. NEVER EVER have we allowed "bad dealer" type of posts. The difference now is that I do not ban for people posting. I come here and tell you all to stop it.

Now if there are studies on this disease, please share. I personally would be interested in reading it. The vast majority I am seeing in google searches as I state was forum posts with people not referencing much.
