so yesterday was rodent day for my tegus and snake, went to the freezer and no mice or rats. so i went to the closest pet shop i could find, although they charge twice as much for rodents i had very little choice. so i asked the guys and girl standing at the register for 2 large mice(ft) and 1 live then i asked if they had any ft. rat pups or mice fuzzy and one of the guys ask " what are you feeding" i reply 2 tegus and a ball pythonhe ask "columbian?" i say no argentine he says "you know you can just give em hotdogs" im like they need raw meat and they wont eat them because they're cooked he goes" they're not cooked , i feed em to my 2 ft. tegu all the time" im just standing there looking confused. hotdogs? seriously? who would feed there tegus hotdogs. and i hope he wasnt trying to say they were better than rodent. this is why many people when going to a petshop are misinformed about the animal they are getting. i remember a few years back @ the same place an associate was trying to sell an iguana to a lady and her kid, and he told her it would only grow depending on the cage size, wtf? an iguana will grow to 6' in a 10 gal(definately not recommended) but you cant stop an iguana from growing. and why would you want to? just another reason i dont go to this store!
