 For those of you who shop at petco...

well i was at petco today looking for a heat mat and found somerhing else. I buy all my animals from a local company but i was like, ’why not’ so i walk inside and almost trip on dog piss, yeah. so i headed towards the herps and saw about seven green and red iggies in a roughly 30-40 gallon tank, each abou a foot long. then i saw the leos, all in mid shed with only one hide, a dry one no moist, then one impacted one and one pregnant one all with skinny tails. then there was the five ball pythons in a ten gallon. but the beardies had it the worst, here is the conversation between me and the, " certifified vet ”


me: um this beardie is bone skinny and their veggie bowl is empty,


vet:ok lemme take a look [ opens cage and holds lizard] seems healthy eyes are bright

me: how do you know, his eyes are closed


vet: well kid sometimes it’s just natural selection

me: right natural selection...in a petstore.


vet: any more questions

me: well that one has been having seizures i say as i point to the tank

vet: [annoyed ] ill look into it


then i went to fish and the marine ich was EVERYWHERE dead fish, bloated fish skeletons... i will post pictures later
