It doesn't make sense. There are tons of US groups and to have a splinter off a UK group makes less sense. This is a sore subject because most of these groups are splinters of the TT. Why can't we just keep it one big group.
Well you might want to check them out sometime your in that area it is a pretty cool place (has lots of nice corals and salt water stuff) it also has many reptiles but I don't like the living conditions they are in (Ie. Tortoises in very small Viv and mixed with other species) but still a cool place for marine things. oh and they have a Fly River Turtle there.
i feel the same way about RFUK too controlling i think the mods are nice though but until I am a tortoise expert it is always good to get advice and there is alot of nice members on here do you go on any other forum?
