I see there are still some online users that are to shy to post.

So just a reminder for some of the new folks to the hobby or for those who may not have been to many or any reptile expos.

Please please please always remember to quarantine your animals after purchasing and bringing home from a show, expo, store or shipment.

And although its not as common now to find mites or external parasites, diseases and parasites you can not physically see are not unheard of still in this day and age.

All I can recommend is, keep them away from already acclimated pets and animals. Use a clean, sterile environment, with as little stress as possible! I try to observe from a distance and provide simple, dark hiding places for animals to take refuge. It may take weeks or months but in the end it is 100% worth it to make sure you have a happy, healthy animal.
