mmm k

So, all of a sudden this Hermit Crab Hut shows up in the mall and of course, my boyfriend has to stop and watch them. He's obsessed with these kinds of things-one time he spent a good 15 min trying to 'help' one of the hermit crabs find a shell. I don't really care because I think the crabs are lame anyway.

But then...

We pass by the Hermit Crab Hut and I do a complete double take because I see frogs. As a total herp freak, I stopped to check it out. Actually, I almost flipped out. This crappy cart in the mall (it's not even a real store, it's just a cart that people rent when they have retarded merchandise) is selling reptiles?!?! The thing that disturbed me most was two small tanks packed with iguanas. Granted, I'm a snake person, but I knew that they weren't healthy. It look to me like they weren't sheding right, either way, there was definatly not enough humidity in there. So, I opened the cage up and started doing tiny assesments and it was completly tragic.

I wanted to shove some in my sweatshirt, but I realized that was a lame idea since I have nothing at home to house an ig. (My dad filled the 60 gal. tank up with water and put fish in it. I told him it would look better with bearded dragons.) My next reaction was to buy all of them, but that was dumb too. Besides, I'm 19 and in college...money is like this weird myth that I hear people talking about.

What can I do about this cart? It's completly ridiculous! BTW, I live in Tucson, AZ if that will affect what laws are applicable. And even if nothing can legally be done, you can expect a good reaming of the cart owner by me.

Peace~
