I understand its like most rats came from pet shops back in the day. I only know of one shop which get skunks. If pet shops get skunks you would think all would get background info as there a rare 'exotic pet'.

woop woop my mc donalds is here... XD

Nopes not really lol most pet shops dont care where they have come from as long as they sell them

there is only a small handful of shops that do care about the back ground of animals

running a pet shop aint like private breeding pet shops buy in bulk an add extra on when selling

to them it makes no difference where an animal has come from aslong as it makes them a profit

It'll always be the same as with Hedgies, loads outside the radar as it were...
Although if there is an option for something like this, then a lot of breeders will go for it as it gives them an edge over unregistered skunks.

It's the kind of thing that will grow purely because it's there.

i thought pet shops like this would of been alot more careful with what animals were sold by them. Guess just like pets at home then. Lol.

So is there other people here who have pet shop skunks? Also are they any harder to keep as with other pets i have had in past from pet shops always seemed to get bad health or be really skitty. It's easier if you know the animals well you can tame them up faster and seems a piece of cake.

LOL pets @ home probs care more about where their animals come from than other smaller pet shops do


At the end of the day its a business to them its a way of life and making money

Affraid pets at home sell pets from animal farms i know the rodents are.
They do care for them in the shop i guess and they do try make it better for the animals now. Only because of complaints from public. Lol.

tbh if they were illegal imports and can be proven as such without getting anyone into trouble, they'd probably be good for the bloodlines!
That's the problem with a small island like ours, bloodlines are a bit trapped.

But proving that could then lead to having the animal removed an destroyed as the animal hasnt been through the quarantine process

this is why people wouldnt come forward an say they own one of the illegal imports
