Wow! I just saw where somebody was keeping Intermedia in a CB70 tub we keep shy snakes in! !!

I'm no stranger to using them for snakes, particularly shy snakes that spend most of their time under hides INSIDE a CB70 and I realize there is debate pro and con but a Blue Tongue Skink?! Wow!!!

Blue tongues, particularly Intermedia, are super intelligent visually stimulated animals! These are animals that bask in sunlight in nature regularly and are super inquisitive . I can't believe anyone that knows anything about them would do such a thing for convenience! I'm stunned!

Outside in a pit or some type of enclosure or or large screened in tortoise tub for commercial breeding but a CB70 tub! WOW! This is a new low in our hobby. Sad

Some of you may even know this breeder and can excercise some opinion. The thought of even purchasing from someone that would keep a lizard that intelligent and aware in something not much bigger than the Intermedia itself to make a lousy buck is detestable.

I just had to vent . Sorry folks. As far as I can see there is no debate on this. It's CRUEL!
