Today I went to the local reptile shop to pick up some supplies. Not very cham oriented but usually has a few along with all the classic "pet shop" reptiles. All the regular CB beardies, corn snakes etc. and tons of the under $50 WC variety. As I waited my turn at the cash register I casually looked around at the animals. What surprised me was the general good appearance and health of all of them! 90% of these animals are WC but mostly very young specimens, In crowded but clean-ish, appropriate tanks. In the past I usually avoided looking at animals because they are usually older beat up/near death adults. I wonder if this is a general trend, collecting younger animals who stand a far better chance of acclimation or just a one time fluke? I hope it is a sign of a new, at least new to me, trend in the "reptile trade".
