Yeah, sometimes they seem to have misinformed staff there... I once saw at Petsmart, that they were keeping firebelly toads and firebelly newts together, and the newts kept dying so they stopped stocking them. Somehow it never occurred to them just to house them in separate tanks...

at petsmart they were housing chameleons with dumpy tree frogs and there was a poor tadpole that they tried to kill because it got shipped in with the goldfish but I saved it! he is a bullfrog tadpole.

Yes, they often are not as knowledgeable about herps as they should be. It is an unfortunate situation, although sometimes they do get things right... I think it depends on how well trained the employees are...

you would think that since a store is called Petsmart that the employes would be smart.

Petco is horrible to their animals! They hire people that have absolute ZERO knowledge on animals. They have more animals getting sick and dying than they do getting homed. And, a lot of the time the employees give EXTREMELY incorrect care ’advise’ to first-time pet owners!!

They are no better up here in Alaska either. I would like to talk to the CEO about their employees lack of knowledge. I don’t know if they have care sheets or not, I haven’t seen them here. I have seen them at PetSmart in Washington.
