I agree with you about several points you have made. I am sort of wondering what sort of Herper you are. Do you collect, breed, buy, sell, import, export, attend breeder expos/sales shows, or what.

I kind of think the hypocricy issue much the same way as I do with racism. If you are prejiduced against only one race or ethnic group, you are still a racist. Even if you are only a little bit of a racist, you are still a racist.

I have personally sold WDB's to Bill Haast and to several other venom research labs. They seeked me out because of the way I collect and the size of the snakes I collect. I also have no doubt that some of the animals from the round-ups end up with buyers that are providing snakes to those labs.

I definately believe that we need to exercise some level of responsibility in all aspects of what we do with Herps. Maybe the first responsibility it to not "throw rocks" at those we do not think are doing things just as WE want them to.
