Hi there:

Recently I was at a local pet store. They have one of the best reotile collections I have ever seen in a pet store, or even in some zoos. The problem: they hardly know the first thing about the creatures they're selling!
It was when I was there buying supplies in the reptile section that I noticed a tank reading "baby yellow-striped Thai caecilian". It was $50. Woah! An Ichthyopis! My mission was complete! All I needed was to find a worker and my dream of owning an Ichthyophis would be a reality in the blink of an eye! I broke out in a sweat.
I finally found a worker. He dug around in the soil to find nothing. That was when I saw it- the Tokay. I hadn't noticed a large tokay gecko, almost a foot long, perched on one of the leaves in the vivarium. A Tokay in with a BABY ICHTHYOPHIS!!!!! The Tokay was very fat. Undoubtedly, he had snapped the thin little amphibian right up!
You may as well feed the gecko $1 million dollars as far as I'm concerned. An Ichthyophis! No!
