“Imagine being a snake keeper.
Now imagine as a result, you & your family become prisoners in your home, forced to purchase security systems, floodlights, and cameras to protect you from overzealous & slightly psychotic neighbors who are threatening you & your family’s safety and your private property.
Now imagine being a successful snake breeder, one of the best then waking up and learning you have brain cancer and the costs to get the medical help you need are beyond anything you could ever afford.
Just some of the shoes belonging to Thomas Cobb & Rico Walder which we placed you in last night. Check out a killer episode of the one and only world famous, UrbanJunglesRadio”
Just listened to this episode. Talk about scary.
And I love how the busybody neighbor is so worried that their neighborhood is now “the snake neighborhood” and that their property values will go down.
No. What you should be worried about is that your neighborhood is now known as the one with the creepy lady who stalks and photographs her neighbors.
My two cents re: this ask that alltailnolegs got.
The anon said they didn’t want to be confrontational, but the “people really should be doing activity x instead of activity y” mentality is irritating. Just because something isn’t your cup of tea, or there’s some “nobler” version of the activity that could be done instead, doesn’t mean people should feel bad about what they enjoy. Everyone has their own hobbies as well as causes that they’re passionate about, and the right to spend their time and money as they please.
That said, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with not liking morphs. Or wanting more folks to care about snake conservation. If that’s your passion, why not get folks excited about it? It’s not like people who do like morphs can’t also get behind normals/locality-type animals and snake conservation. It’s not an either/or situation. Instead of implying that other folks are enjoying reptiles the wrong way, show them how amazing your way of enjoying reptiles is!
