Holy , these forums are dead! Sorry it's taken me so long to respond; as I may or may not have shared the plans (I didn't go back far enough to catch up on what We were discussing), my girlfriend and I moved to PA on 18 October 2013, and We haven't had internet since. So, We hit up the library every 2-3 weeks when We can, and I have 72 emails left including this, HA! :P

So; quickly...

Indeed; in the right hands, which--relatively speaking, since Hot keepers are the minority within the herpetocultural hobby--We are more responsible* than others who might work with, say, Dart Frogs and Day Geckos.

One-hundred Python regius is a lot...I'd rather use the space for more various genera/species. As for people "hating" Royals in the 80s/early 90s, it's because most (Normal morphs, at least) were WC, and heavily (externally) parasitized. I swear: that was the species with the most ticks I had ever kept (and perhaps the only species with ticks I had ever kept!). And yes; the further back in Time You go (especially 60s/70s), the more dealers and keepers alike were into the newest are rarest species. Then money for "creations" dominated...ugh.

I understand You on the "raped herps" now. Hence, 'moderation' in my previous message. I don't care if it's legal to take 100 eggs in a season; a respectful and Nature-loving dealer would only take 50 (hopefully less), and so on.

Get a snake!! And no kidding; weather is brutal here...quite a flood zone, We hear.

Sincerely,
Timothy

*In regards to responsibility--and it may have seemed like comparing apples and oranges with Hots to Dart Frogs/Day Geckos--it also entails knowledge and research in providing optimum/proper habitats which can, for example, ensure proper sheds = less interaction between specimen(s) and keeper = less chance of bites = responsibility. Id est, Hot keepers better-create environments which result in less health issues.
