I agree and disagree. I believe animals are meant to be enjoyed, both in the wild and in our homes. Abuse can occur with any animal that is captive bred or caught in the wild. I believe the problem occurs when irresponsible people join the trade out of greed and/or ignorance. This could include pupp...
Can I just ask...does anyone have a hard time telling if your hermies enjoy the food you give them? I've tried offering many items from the safe food list and I can't say I've found my crabs love any food in particular. I always read that crabs eat a lot of certain foods and everyone seems to know t...
