2. You should not keep darts unless you can provide as much habitat as they would have available in the wild.
3. In addition to your Phd you must also have a DVM, a fully equipped and staffed OR on call 24/7/365 just in case your $25 dollar frog needs $50,000 in emergency care.
4. You must have at least 4000 posts on this board. You must state your opinion as fact beyond question and berate anyone who doesn't meet your standards.
5. Each frog must fill out a 100 page questionnaire before it is bred to insure a DEEP level of compatibility with its mate.
6. A menu must be presented to each frog prior to feeding so that the frog can select the food it is in the mood for and to make sure it is prepared the way the frog likes it.
7. Any potential frog keeper must be blessed by each and every frog keeper and must follow any other rules they may have even when the contradict each other.
8. All of these hard and fast rules must be obeyed in spite of the fact that no business or hobbyist will be able to afford to keep frogs. It does not matter that this will create the perception that frogs can not possibly be kept as pets. It does not matter that younger kids will not have the opportunity to observe these frogs in person and may one day may aspire to become biologist because of a seed planted in their heads when they were young and go on to do great things in biology that may help wild species. It does not matter that wild populations are dwindling and privately kept frogs may be the only examples left some time down the road. And lastly, it does not matter that you disagree with me because my way is the only way. I will now yield the soapbox to someone else. Peace.
Sounds like a jibe at criticism itself---thanks for the double entendre. It was very amusing. (Obviously, it is to be understood that the statements here were made in jest and not seriously, and mainly run contrary to good ethics.)
