DO NOT SUPPORT EXOTIC ARC
The pictures above were taken on August 29th, 2014 by a member of a bearded dragon community. These bearded dragons are being kept at Exotic ARC located in St. Louis, MO. The conditions the bearded dragons are kept in are clearly deplorable. There are way too many housed altogether, their tank is obviously hardly cleaned, many of the dragons are lethargic and some are even possibly dead.
These guys pride themselves in being reptile experts. If they cannot even take care of bearded dragons, how are they caring for the more ‘intermediate’ reptiles in the store? Many people have witnessed the other reptiles in the store being neglected just as bad, with one person saying the following:
“The animals had no water. The baby leopard geckos were eating each other. Dead animals everywhere in the cages. They also way too many baby chameleons in one cage and at least 10 dead ones at the bottom. The smell in there is horrific.”
They also have been seen to give incorrect advice on how to care for reptiles. Someone who posted looking for advice on how to take care of a turtle they found was told that all they needed was a ‘full spectrum light’ to take care of the turtle, while in reality they need an actual UVB light as well as a heat lamp. See the following:
A group of us have been trying to go on their facebook to bring attention to these issues to not only the owner but also the customers. They simply delete the posts once they get online.
What we can do:
Leave a review on their Facebook page (they can’t delete reviews, they can only hide the review page itself if they choose to)
Contact FOX 2 news in St. Louis to cover the deplorable conditions these animals are being kept in
It is amazing and horrible that this store has remained operating for as long as it has if it subjects its reptiles to these conditions. Stores like these give a bad name to other small businesses that go out of their way to properly care for their reptiles.
If anybody who lives around the area could travel to the store to gather more proof of the blatant neglect taking place, that would be much appreciated.
Notice, guys: He has posted on his FB that he “ran into trouble” and is asking all of his FB friends to go onto his shop page and leave a positive review.
I have a lot of followers. If everyone were to leave a bad review, it would overwhelm and surpass the amount of friends he even has on his FB. Please stop by his shop page and leave as shitty of a review as you can.
We’re almost to 300 followers. Please send this around, this is absolutely despicable and downright horrid.
This is disgusting. Poor babies. :(
it’s weird how straight boys will find out that a girl is bisexual and then think that girl wants to fuck them with another girl. And if they find out a guy is gay they think that guy wants to fuck them.
No one wants to have sex with you. You are are not cute. At all.
French animal rightsactivists staged a spectacular stunt Saturday night in Maubourget, southern France, by jumping into abullfightingring at the start of the event, creating chaos and causing the temporary evacuation of the arena.
The activists were brutalized by police. Four activists had to be evacuated by ambulance to a nearby hospital in Tarbes. All four were hospitalized and two were in “serious condition.” One activist suffered a fractured pelvis, a fractured tibia and fractured elbow.
Fucking police beat them while they were already on the ground bleeding from attacks from bullfighting fans.

vegans that think they care more about animals just because they don’t use or eat animal products make my eyes roll so hard
We don’t think we do. In fact, we don’t even have to articulate it. Our actions pretty much do all the talking. So, let your actions speak for you too. =) You can either support cruelty or you can toss it. You can’t verbally support cruelty then go right ahead an indulge in it. =)
Oi oi, you lovely people! I was tagged by the lovely decepti-sumus for this challenge.
Apparently, I need to write 5 positive things about myself and tag 10 random, wonderful followers to do the same. =D
So. Things I like about myself:
1. I am rather patient, or at least I like to believe that I am.
2. I endeavour to be as calm as possible even in trying situations, not as some way to “transcend the situation” rather just to not lose my head and be quick to panic, and I suppose that’s an extension of patience, in a way. =D
3. I love that I have a very definite moral compass and only do what I believe is right (which is why I kick myself for not having gone vegan earlier. =/) regardless of others’ stand or indeed the general populace’s opinion on the matter. If something is wrong, however legal, it must not be done, and if something is right, no matter how illegal it is, it must be done. It’s pretty much that way for me.
4. I love my horrible jokes and whacky puns. *Someone’s got to, and I do feel so bad for the people who hear them and endure the suffering! XD*
5. I like that I have always done my own thing regardless of what other people think (thank you again for the fortitude to do so, Marcus Aurelius).
And now, to tag 10 people! =D
People from work wanted something from Bangalore- Krispy Kreme doughnuts- needless to say I disliked the idea- firstly because it has “cream” in it, secondly because the place stinks of dairy, and thirdly because it has two misspelled words in a two word title.
Making vegan canapes for them instead. =D
Sorry I’ve been away. Got shunted off to another city on work for two weeks!
Hope you guys have been doing good. And well =D
