Very sad. I'm going to stick this link in the sticky thread with the other articles about the recent selling for "cures". Thanks for posting it.

What on earth were they doing with the silicone-injected geckos to try and treat HIV/AIDS in humans?? Silicone is toxic to us, too...!!

RM100,000 is around $34,000USD, I'm pretty sure there is a better way to get a gecko big and heavy for something a bit less than that.

Just wow!

Isn't it crazy what some people will do to a defenseless animal just to make $$$

I would like to think it's not money itself, but greed that drives this sort of thing. A total lack of morality helps select the method though.

I can't imagine the type of person who could bring themselves to inject a live animal with silicon to bulk it up, its hard enough for me to understand those vain people who do it to change the way they look.
