It is a rough topic! I choose to kinda stay away from it though, it gets heated quick. The feeder breeder I was going to buy a boy from breeds for pets and feeders, the ones that do not go into his breeding plan are euthanized and he keeps the ones that will pass on the traits he looks for. He wants solid blue dumbos, so he's working with beige selfs and blue hooded rats right now. Id personally rather people breeding them than rat mills, it's better for both animals. I would never own a snake though, I find them to be gorgeous animals regardless.
I'm hungry, the chef went to bed and now I must fend for myself. Nixon says he wants me to buy some chips and dip... I've gained 10lbs listening to him.
Really? I've seen like little cornsnakes which seem fine...
Cornsnakes are NOT cricket eaters ever! They eat rodents from day one, and insects will not give them the proper protein and calcium. Sadly like bettas, most petstores get that info wrong. Not to mention the employees don't generally like snakes, so don't care if they starve to death. :( Corns are amazing pets though, and one of the best starter snakes in the world. Easy, gentle, nice sized, and cheap to own.
