My apologies,perhaps my post to Brandon was not well thought out.
I do believe that if "Brandon"(read-anyone) had a "store bought"
herp,chances are fairly slim that s/he would be catching and releasing
wild caughts.The IBD scenario is feasable(sp?),and not worth riking.
The "Billie Bob" scenario is much less likely(and slighly offensive to
those of us who could be considered "Red-neck"!)It has been my experience
that very few snakes lose their fear of man permanently.I have caught and
released a few snakes repeatedly-Believe me when I tell you that they did
not recognize me for the source of free food that I am!
I would like to agree that both of these points were good ones,and I
will now reccomend that wild herps remain that way-Wild!!
