Hi herpetocommunity!

I'm a college student in the U.S. doing a research project on the Herpetocommunity. The purpose of this research is simply for me to gain a greater insight into the community from actual members. Down below are some open ended questions, you are welcome to fill out as much or as little as you want, anything is appreciated! Thanks in advance!!

1. When did you first get into herping?
2. How do you feel about reptile expos?
3. Do you have any concerns about the morality of the reptile/amphibian trade?
4. How would you describe the herpetocommunity? What are some misconceptions you think people have?
5. In what ways has joining the herpetocommunity impacted you?

1. I dont go herping, I have enough animals at home to be chasing after
2. Good way to sell livestock though I feel should be more controlled as to who can attend. It's a breeders/society meeting. Not a huge reptile shop.
3. Yes
4. Toxic
5. Made me angry and not want to be that involved with most of it.

1. Define Herping....
2. Too open a question... what happens in the US is different to other countries and this is a UK based forum
3. Yes
4. Varied
5. Define "joining the herpetological community". The "community" changes over years - when I started we had local societies here in the UK - now most have gone
