Expanding on online animals
Was reading the "Online animals" post and thought this a good topic especially for beginners. Hopefully those with experience would expand on how to go about purchasing animals. i have both bought and sold birds via the internet but never reptiles and could write a book on what to look out for lol.
Cdfortin says there are a lot of "scams" how would a newbie know what to look for??. Also how do you determine the value of the animal and what type guarantees should you expect or demand lol.
I have been very lucky compared to others that I've heard of. I dislike buying anything without seeing it first
but find that there really isn't much choice if it's rare or hard to find.
There is a story going around the bird lists that a person sold a"Recently weaned T-rex complete with vet check and normal shots" for 500 bucks. Don't know if the story is true but somehow I would suspect it was a "scam" lol
Give us some clues of what to look for when reading the ads...Thanks
