>>The last post to this forum is Nov. 2013? Are people losing interest in box turtles, this forum, both or what?

People have lost interest and have been hassled and harassed by Govt. interests brought on by the stupidity and foolishness of the BIG snake owners. I saw this coming years ago and sold off most of my selection of colubrid snakes. I still keep a handful of snakes and my box turtles.

The big snake owners have systematically destroyed our hobby. No one but a handful of us would speak out against them. The idiots brought down suspicion and scrutiny of our entire hobby. Our hobby is now highly regulated. KS.com used to be a bustling forum. Now its a pittance of what it once was.

The reticulated/rock/Burmese python owner-breeders have jack up the entire hobby. Look around at the different reptile/amphibian forums. Most of them have just a handful of post over an entire year. Look back in the archives of some of these forums and you will note how much more activity there was just a few years ago.

If some of you are offended by this TOO BAD. I call it like I see it.
