    That's awesome gullah! Not awesome about the conditions prior to you bringing him home, but about making them look foolish. Have fun with him.

    Congrats! Glad you saved the little guy! He's a cutie. Sounds like he is settling right in. Unfortunately chain petstores are very irresponsible. They care about their bottom lines but not so much the care of the animals, particularly amphibians and reptiles. I saved my little Loki from pretty much the same conditions from Petsmart. Despite my pointing out the errors, the next two pacmans they got in were put in the same conditions. I had to ehem... educate them repeatedly before they listened. Took the manager down the aisles and pointed out exactly which products they should have been using. But congratulations on your new addition! Good luck!

    You really aren't "saving" or "rescuing" anything, the pet store is just going to order another frog to put in it's place, are you gonna rescue that frog too? Overall you are supporting a pet store that doesn't properly care for their animals only to put another animal at risk.

    But thats one less frog, greenhorn. No one will EVER completely stop animal cruelty. You can only do so much to help.

    It's better than nothing, one less animal that will probably die.

    Camden you are missing my point, it's not "one less frog" now another frog is going to suffer that same experience, by making the purchase you contribute to the problem, bottom line.

    Okay rather than letting one die in a pet shop let's let 10 suffer from animal cruelty so we can feel like we "saved" one. You really don't understand how you are contributing to the problem?

    You can't stop animal cruelty, it's just one of the many problems of our modern day society.

    Yes but you can contribute to it, and "saving" an animal from a pet shop does just that, if no one buys it they won't stock it...

    Hey that's enough. Everyone gets it. I've heard this speach as well. When ice flows through your veins then it is easier to walk away then to try and help save one life and then try to educate the sell to prevent those other ten from experiencing the same fate. Why don't you just let Camden feel content with what was accomplished and yes it was supporting that store but one person can make a difference like I did and maybe Camden will do the same. No need to rain on someones parade repeatedly. You stated your opinion and it should be left at that. Wouldny

    You can educate the seller and you should, this forum can also be used to educate the buyer

    True which you have done by voicing your opinion. I do not disagree that it is supporting a store that promotes animal cruelty. Sadly its unwittingly. Half the staff at these stores wouldn't know a horned lizard from a horned frog. If just one person makes a difference in one of those chain stores then maybe it will spread to the rest of the chain. No way to know for sure, but a good thing was done no matter if it supported that store. We can alwys hope they'll change, but there is never a guarentee.
