I’m not an option. Prioritize right.

1 of my 4 little homies. He's huge, by far my largest. His shell is fatter than a large chicken wing. Poor dude was by himself in a little tiny tank at petco with nasty old looking "hermit crab food," and his humidity was way too dry. When I first brought him home he hid for a while then came out and ate a bunch of carrots and and drank a bunch of water and rolled around in it. I think he was happy to be around some friends and in a proper crabitat and super happy to eat some real food. #hermitcrab #purplepincher #fuckpetco #rescued #petco

I'm so sorry little guy. I tried :/
Swim in peace. β€πŸ˜”
**edit to add: he did not die during this video. This is just what he was suffering through. I did what I could with what I had. He was starving and couldn't/wouldn't eat. I hate that stores let this happen. It will never make sense to me.

β€ͺUnfortunately Quinn had to be put down. It has been several days since I had to make the decision to put him down. Now I’m finally strong enough to talk about it. He fought really hard but his lungs just couldn’t take it anymore. I did everything possible to save him but fate wasn’t generous with him. The vet informed me that the reason he had this condition is because of PETCO’s brutality towards their animals. They ship animals across country and since they (guinea pigs) are under so much stress, they develop pneumonia or other fatal stress related illnesses. I have vowed to never set foot or purchase anything from a PETCO store EVER AGAIN. I wish I could save all the pigs there but I can’t stand to give them my money. I am truely angry and sad. I lost my baby because these inconsiderate corporate losers that want to make money off of animal suffering. Please do not buy products from them let alone small animals. Adopt from well known and caring shelters that know a lot about each animal they tend to. These animals don’t deserve to be a commodity they deserve to be treated as equals and loved like we love each other. I gave Quin a good life. I saved him from the small, dirty PETCO cages or from being a Christmas present to be ignored later. I gave him everything I had in me which made it so much harder to see him go. I love him and I will never forget him so long as I live. ‬I also wantedβ€ͺ ‬to thank those that kept him in your thoughts. The support itself is so meaningful. He isn’t in pain anymore and he can finally breathe peacefully. I hope he’s up there playing with Liam. #animalrights #fuckpetco Here’s a few piggy pages I like to follow: @guineapigmoments @guinea_pigs_fanclub

I’d like to think he’s as fond of me as I am of him πŸ˜ΌπŸ–€πŸ¦Ž #leopardgecko #reptile #reptilesofinstagram #leopardgeckosofinstagram #fuckpetco #saynotosand #babygeckos

*** Rant post: *** (And potential adoptables.) 🌈🌊
Welp, I don't think I'm going to the petco closest to me anymore. I almost got into it with a crew member and the store manager after they lied to me about how they "have tons of hospital tanks set up in the back and have resources to care for the fish". This store in particular overcrowds their pythons, hamsters, beardies, and at any given time they have sick and dying mice and fish, stressed out birds. I GET IT. It's a big box store. Fine. But we went to TWO petcos today and petsmart. This is the only one this bad, and its where I get all the worst fish from.
I'll be making calls later, but for now, meet the two new additions.
One is a juvenile TINY TINY crowntail with super faded color, and a thin little body. The other is a HALFMOON with fins that are rapidly MELTING OFF of him, and he can't swim for more than a few seconds without floating, freaking out and bumping into things... πŸ˜”

Idk guys. I love this hobby, I love what I do, and I love all my fish, but its just fucking sad sometimes.

My koi betta rescue from Petco. Moo is currently in a breeding enclosure to be separated from my 29 gallon sorority, who’re also being treated with Marineland All-In-One Remedy. Moo’s future 10 gallon tank is currently being cycled.

#petcokilledallmyfish #wtf #tankcrash #fuckpetco @petco sells poison!!!! Last fish to die is in the weeds total of 8 fish killed in a 12 hour period!

Rescued this little sweetie from Petco today! Welcome to your sanctuary, Bis πŸ’πŸ’•

So I've been holding off on posting this. I got this pacman frog from petco. This picture was taken once he had been in a proper enclosure for awhile and got color back. At petco he was on reptile carpet so he could burrow down and the carpet was dry so he had no humidity and he was grey. I know I shouldn't be buying from petco but I needed to save him. He passed away a few days ago from what I have concluded is parasites. #pacmanfrog #petcorescue #fuckpetco #fuckpetsmart

Update on Giant Enemy Crab, aka the 3 toed box turtle! (My bf named him, Idk) he is so much more active since I got my 2nd 3 toed, who I have yet to name. Thinking Turbo lol but I am just happy to see G.E.C. come out of his shell, pun intended.
Let us notice G.E.C. back for a second, he is the one on top/ in the back. When I got him his shell was ridgy. LOOK AT THAT PROGRESS THO. 10/10 fighting spirit!

I worked for Petco for nearly 2 years, about 4 years ago. Unfortunately, I seemed to be the only one who didn't just pretend to care most days. All petco stores have a Wellness room, where distressed animals, animals awaiting to go to the vet or "overstock" animals are kept. These animals often need to be administered medication twice a day...if it weren't for me, so many of them would have died. I collected dozens of dead fish every day from the tops of the tanks. The ferrets lived among tons of literal shit. Hamsters were neglected and treated like shit because no one "liked" them or wanted to risk getting bit. The bottom of the birds cage was only cleaned MAYBE once a month, until I stepped in. They kept mice in such quantities that they would sometimes start cannibalizing each other, even though there was food. One of their best sellers is Hermit Crabs, pets that are deemed "easy" for children. Parents are told to buy a tiny tank, put sand in it, a small bowl of water and feed them crickets. Hermit crabs require a varied diet, fellow crabs, a light and some type of humidifier. The worst part is, the "pretty" shells they are given, are artificial painted shells and are a constant aggitator to a hermit crabs 'skin'. In order to get them into these shells, they are placed under a nut-cracker of sorts, that breaks their shell, then forced to pick between painted shells. Petco's have been caught on multiple occasions literally throwing reptiles into the dumpsters behind their stores. The bottom line is that they are all coming from shithole animal mills like the one in this video.

New addition. Little buddy doesn't have a name yet, got him the other day. He is in the same tank as my other box turtle so they can be social butterflies. Hoping this little guy can teach Giant Enemy Crab how to turtle. I love waking up and taking care of my reptile friends, its been my purpose as of late while I can't work.

Update on my sweet bean: its been about 2 weeks on his medicine and hes doing a lot better. He still has a way to go but I'm going to start focusing on getting his appetite back up. He lost a lot of weight that I worked hard to put on him when I first adopted him. Hes so tiny but I love him. His brows aren't as sunken in thank goodness...

This is the look of someone who bit his humom because he got too excited about green pepper when she was hand feeding him..... Humom's finger bled.

This is my room and the ladys😜 #fuckpetco #

Mom was holding me and she says I grew a lot compared to when she first adopted me. In about a year I will be as big as Road, but mom says that hopefully I will be bigger since Road is kinda short.

Thirsty baby. Out of all of the babes Hes the hardest to rehab.. Probably because I can't just pull on his beard and make him take his meds like I have to do for Road. Hes made progress though, he's eating and drinking again but I still have to dig him out of his holes to make him.. Progress is progress though.

One more announcement:
I was going to wait until he calmed down a bit but that might be awhile. Meet my new iguana. I didn't personally go out and purchase him but I have been doing a lot of research about iguanas because I wanted to get one. I wanted a rhino iguana but someone I knew impulse bought this boy this past week and then decided that they aren't as interested in reptiles as I am. They asked me if I would be willing to take this lil guy and I freaked out! I'm happy because I have an iguana now BUT please let this be a lesson:
-IF YOU THINK AN ANIMAL IS CUTE OR PRETTY OR WHATEVER, DO. YOUR. RESEARCH. PLEASE.
I told the person why their iguana was acting skittish and head bobbing at them and that's how I ended up with this 2nd babe in the past 2 weeks.
Ill be honest, I'm so happy. Thing is I'm borderline a rescue now.. 3 of my babes are rescues. There's no visible signs of illness on this one though, he only had some stuck shed on his nose. He doesn't head bob at me, and he is skittish, but the person was amazed how I was still able to hold him. Its true when they say animals choose their people, so even if you are attracted to a reptile, they might not be attracted to you.
He doesn't have a permanent name yet but I've been calling him Racer until his personality shines through.
ONE MORE THING: if anyone has any diets they do for iguanas please let me know. I have him on a varied 2 or 3 greens, 2 veges, and a small amount of 1 fruit each day for the past couple days. I know their diets differentiate from dragons in the sense that iguanas need a slight amount of phosphorus whereas beardies are supposed to stay away from phosphorus, so I gave Racer like 2 leaves of baby spinach today.

This is my new babe, technically a rescue, got him/her from someone I know. They weren't taking care of this little 3 toed box turtle to the fullest and I constantly begged them to give me this little babe lol finally got it! I'm happy but also sad because it has soft shell and some ridges. So ill be working to get it back to health, but its a turtle and turtles aren't 100% my expertise as far as care goes. I'm not sure how I'm going to make it take some oral vitamins when it doednt even want to eat lol. My boyfriend named him GIANT ENEMY CRAB exactly with caps and all. Tbh thought its name would have been turbo but he surprised me with the other name πŸ˜‚ Anyway I have had it "him" for about a week now and hes settled in so I think I can start giving him the vitamins, but opening a turtles mouth is beyond me.

My baby Almond after a week of living in decent conditions. (He's so active now it was tough getting a good picture) #adoptdontshop #fuckpetco #fuckpetsmart #allthatshit ALSO I want to add that regular beta fish food is too big for his tiny mouth and I have to break it up for him now so that's the reason all that food was just sitting at the bottom of his cup...
