A Chondro Keeper/Breeder in the Texas area surrendered a large collection of chondros to a local Reptile Rescue. A few of the chondros surrendered that were at this keeper/breeder's facility were in on breeding loans. My chondro that was in with the chondros surrendered is Knizek. The info I have been given has been spotty, and the Reptile Rescue was 911 Wildlife of Texas. Barry Manson has at least one animal that has been surrendered ( if not more), and he was the one who alerted me to situation. Barry has made contact with the animal control officer who took possession of the chondros, and Barry believes they are being dispersed to local retail outlets and local private collections based upon the animal control officers statements. I have contacted a few of the Texas chondroheads that are MVF members via Pm and asked them to be on the lookout for these chondros. I am going to work hard to track down Knizek, and Barry's animals. I have attached a pic of Knizek...he is a male mainland type, a red neo, and he a distinctive yellow spot on the upper third of his body. If you spot him for sale or elsewhere please contact either me (410 446 1112) or Barry Manson. I have been working a lot of hours..I just pulled a 72 hour shift...and I going in tomorrow with the possibility of being away from my computer for another 48 hours....so contacting me by phone will be the best way to contact me. I have no hard feelings toward the person who had to surrender these animals and I truly wish that they are able to get through their difficult times, and I am keeping them in my prayers.
Barry will probably add pics of his chondros once his power is restored.
