    Hello there

    Thanks for the kind words, I've definitely researched a lot and continue to do so. It's hard to tell in the pics but the redfoot and radiated tubs are sitting in a home-made greenhouse. I used pvc pipes and plastic sheets to throw it all together. Of course its just temporary for while they're...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    They have a plant in Kansas City which I live about an hour away from now so it won't be a big move. I noticed TX is where a lot of radiated breeders are so that wouldn't have been bad lol. This way I'll still have access to relatively cheap property and close to family so it's not all that bad...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    Thanks I'll look into Audubon centers as well, and thank you for your service! Right now I'm currently unemployed after a failed contract renegotiation and our unions business rep selling us out and losing half the plant their jobs.. The company I've been interviewing with is called honeywell...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    No worries I appreciate the honesty especially from someone with as much experience as yourself, and thank you for your wisdom. I should add that I didn't expect much from zoos in the first place and maybe put my foot in my mouth when I started this post with just mentioning them. I figured a...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    I feel like I should be paying you for all this information. My biggest problem with getting my project started has been "legitimizing" my torts so when I do get to the final stages of breeding and offering them to institutions (if that ever comes to fruition, still not giving up on my goal...

    Sounds like most of the legislation that seemingly makes sense but dies for no reason other than "politics"

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    I didn't realize the can of worms I was opening with my original question but I'm very glad I asked nonetheless. It mentions at the end of the video that they hope to send the radiated to Europe and the states. I wonder how they plan in doing so if nobody will take them. Or why Madagascar...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    From my little bit of reading it seems the more regulations the less things start to make sense. My example of the snapper for example or soft shell even. It's okay to fish for them but keeping more than 5 without permits is a no no. Would this be because they're worried they would get released...

    Well if you wrestle any bears make sure to record it. Haven't seen any good bear wrestling action since the state banned it. /s

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    Ya I've been looking at my state legislation and I can find specifics for native species but when it comes to exotic it reads like it's basically free game unless it's a few specific species, endangered to US, or a class 2 wildlife. Sounds like I need to just call them to find out. On a side...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    This may seem like a dumb question im just trying to get the full scope.. When you say breeding programs what are you referring to? When I think of breeding programs my mind thinks either for selling in the pet trade, assurance colonies, or for donating to zoos/ nature centers and that sort of...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    I've been reading mind numbing conservation legislation for Missouri all night and am digesting all of this great information here. It's one gut punch after another with you guys lol. Just kidding! I appreciate the honesty very much and this is some of the most informative information I've come...

    Hello there

    Thank you for all this information. I've actually already poured over a lot of it before purchasing them but I appreciate it nonetheless. Yes they are all housed separately and have never made contact with each other and never will. I am using MVB so the they get UVB but I also take them...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    Thanks I appreciate it! I already signed up to the TTPG news letter. I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend this year with locking down a new job and trying to buy a new house in that same time frame but it is definitely a must for me now. Still early in the beginning steps of my ultimate goal...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    I'm still new to this and won't pretend to know as much as a lot of people here such as yourself but thats what I've been running into as well. Which is exactly what led me hear to ask such a question. It seems counter productive to saving an endangered species to make it almost impossible for...

    General questions regarding breeding, conservation, and assurance colonies

    Well in MO they are not represented in the slightest from what I've found and near impossible to get a hold of. My concern wasn't populating MO with them though just a personal frustration lol. Although I do think there's an argument that can be made for supply and demand when we talk about...
