A person I know Called into a new reptile dealers shop in midland today, and saw that he has a morelia spilota imbricate, yes an imbricate, in an enclosure with desert sand as a substrate, there was a water bowl in there which was empty and was all calcium crystallized on the bottom, and you could see that it had been dry for a fair while, It was pointed out to the owner that the water bowl was empty,and needed a refill guess what he said.
HE said that SNAKES DO NOT DRINK WATER they only need water to help them shed. Needless to say he was told that he was wrong and didn't know what he was talking about, and this person left the shop telling him he was a ############## idiot.
He also told a new young snake keeper, that all snakes need uv light's.
So just goes to show any body can become a dealer.
The morale to this story is beware where you shop, for all your reptile needs.-----v
