Erik,

You aren't being "bullied". Robyn is pointing out a very very real concern.

Using illegitimate shipping services to ship reptiles is a huge nightmare waiting just waiting to happen. Your quite flippant reply clearly shows one of two things. One, you just don't understand how using a non-approved shipper to ship reptiles ENDANGERS the whole industry. Or two, you do understand that fact, but saving a few bucks is more important to you than the ability of the reptile industry to ship and receive product. Robyn pointing out this to you isn't you being "bullied" it is you being informed what is the correct way to ship or receive reptiles.

Shipping mishaps happen, and if one of the packages shipped by this "third party 30% logistics company" needs to be opened and a reptile is found, can you guess what happens? The reptile and the packaging are destroyed! How are you feeling about your few bucks saved now? How about the black eye those types of events bring the reptile world. The media is often informed when an event like this happens. All of that to save a few bucks? For real, that is the path you would choose?

I'm not saying you have to use SYR. But to go on a forum and tell folks to use an illegitimate reptile shipper is wrong for the shipper, wrong for the reptile that could be destroyed as the result of your recommendation and wrong for the reptile industry as a whole.

Chad
