our petco is pretty bad, too. the mice are just as bad. They don't know anything about sexing, last time I was there, I helped them pick out several males from the female tanks. There were dead mice in the male tanks, right in the food dishes. It was pretty gross. They don't really sell them as pets, but as snake food, and I guess that's how they try to justify the mistreatment. Its awful. The manager there is really nice, but he's a reptile man, he hates mice, so he doesn't seem to care.
The Petsmarts around here are so much cleaner, and friendlier. The animals are treated so much better. I used to be a pet food rep, and travelled around to different petsmarts, and I haven't seen a bad one. I'm interviewing for a job on thursday where I will be traveling to different petco stores, i'm not really looking forward to that aspect of the job.
