I think you misunderstand me (or maybe I misunderstand you)
I am not saying that the people who adopt from rescues are wanting free pets, I'm saying that some of the rescues themselves may be.

As for cheap animals... around here (in TN) blue tongues are cheaper than burmese, and carpet pythons are only a tad more expensive. In any case, I personally don't consider $200 animals as cheap. $14 iguanas... maybe.

I just want to know how can an average person tell whether a rescue is legit or simply a ploy for gaining animals free?

I get concerned when I see "rescues" advertising their services like they are in desperate need of aquiring animals. I also get concerned when I see the same people who are advertising their "rescue" advertising reptiles for sale. It just doesn't seem legitimate.

How can a person tell?
