DAILY RECORD (Glasgow, UK) 27 September 08 'Munch' Bites Back
Eight snakes, nine red-eared terrapins and a bearded dragon have become the latest victims of the "credit munch".
They were brought to Highland Reptile Rescue because their owners could no longer afford to keep them.
Maggie Nelson, of the centre in Invergordon, Easter Ross, said reptile owners have been hit by a 40 per cent rise in food prices coupled with rocketing energy costs.
She said: "Some reptiles are sold at low-cost so people think they are cheap to buy and cheap to keep, but it is a specialist hobby."
