I would not ever ever ever show off my collection in person to a stranger way too many ppl get robbed in this hobby. Including some members of our very own community.
I understand the appeal of having someone finally interested in seeing them but that’s a hard nope from me. I’ll meet ya at a park or nearby store parking lot but not giving anyone I don’t know my address.
I wouldn’t show a stranger my safe contents or anything else valuable so why are reptiles different. Just my 2 cents. Be careful out there.
**it’s probably fine…but you’re never going to expect the worst to happen until it does.•••
(Also why I think people with big collections need to carry insurance on them and I’m shocked most write it off as “too expensive.” Seems wild to me especially if it represents a large chunk of your income.)
