Hi there:

Ed, I think you really may have started something here. Your photos seem to have gotten people interested in these limbless wonders. It isn't every day that you see something from the caecilian forum on the hot topics list. It's also great that you're on this forum, because if people get intrigued by your pictures and decide to purchase a caecilian of their own, you're here to educate them about caring for such an exotic animal.
Who knows? As long as people took care of such creatures in the right way, it would be astounding if the number of obsevers went up. In my dreams, captive-bred caecilians are seen in stores alongside horned frogs, corn snakes and leopard geckos.
Yet it may be good to keep these animals rather secret. If something like that fell into the wrong hands of someone like a celebrity with a lot of money, keeping it as a novelty, I shudder to think what may happen. Congragulations on drawing more people into the caecilian forum to learn about these living jewels.


DAVE
