Be Careful When Buying Reptiles


Dr. Susan Brown says reptiles, can be great pets; HOWEVER, do you really know what you’re getting into?

Listen HERE as Dr. Brown talks about the international trade in reptiles and why buying from pet stores who may be  importers/exporters is  not a good idea. She says about 70 percent of the animals die in transport. In fact, some of the pet store pets appear so docile because they’re really very sick.
