I went to petco today and they had a good selection of Geckos and other lizards and they were taken care of really well clean vivs, spoke with the current care-taker and she was quite knowledgeable to say the least! I saw a skunk Gecko that was really cool, but I think I still want a crested due to their nature to be well handled. Also their Leopard Geckos, looked great and well there was babies in the viv with them with sand substrate... Other than that everything was fine. Oh yeah she works with all the reps and they are all pretty well tamed I was surprised...

Just thought I would share that some large chain places are doing good for their reps but their fish well thats another story...

Yeah, I was at petsmart today and was surprised to see the animals are actually pretty well taken care of. I did notice that in the water dragons cage though the humidity was only 20%, I mentioned it to an employee and they walked off to go take care of it. I was expecting them all to be in critical condition.

LOL, you just happened to go in after a fresh shipment.. try back in a couple weeks to get some skeletons to decorate your viv.

I was actually at petco today as well, and everything looked great and they had a leo sale at 17.99, i spotted a few albinos in the cage including a chocolate one

I saw a couple sunglow leopards in my local petco which were very pretty but nothing but skin and bones, absolutlery no evidence of feeding aside from a dish of mealworms I felt so sad I almost bought one to save it. Not to mention the caresheets they offered had almost the exact same care requirments for almost all their animals!

well i wish i could say the same about my petco, there was frickin mold in the little mealworm feeding dish for a crestie.....:-xthat pissed me off. but i tend to stay out of big chain pet stores, my girlfriend owns a little petshop and she gave me some of the shop pictus geckos that weren't for sale and a leopard that somebody brought to them because they didn't feel like "taking care" of him anymore. but i recently got 2 cresties from their reptile guy, so i know that these two little ones are winners.:biggrin: but i'm glad that other petco's are keeping their stuff together
