I would like to know what has been your experience in buying from Mark Lucas (mullane@aol.com). I am interested in buying a few WC ball pythons. His disclaimer in the terms and conditions is huge so I would like if anyone has any comments on dealings with him.

I have not personally dealt with him.
I have just e-mailed him on several occasions.
Mark seems like a good guy.
he has to put those disclaimers because they are WC.

I usually don't expect much out of wild caught...meaning....if I bought it and it died....I don't blame the seller.  I just consider it a gamble that I lost.

Thanks for your input Ritchie. He has not gotten back to me yet on my inquiry. I understand they are WC and the risks involved. I read through all the disclaimer and it seems reasonable for WC animals. The only thing I'm concerned about is the "live arrival" as the only guarantee. That leaves the door open for anything. I can deal with internal and maybe external parasites but the rest...

I have purchased reptiles from Mark several times. &nbsp;It was always a good experience. &nbsp;If I am looking for something, I always check with him first..................Robin

If I'm not mistaken...I've done biz with Marc also! I KNOW we've spoke a couple of times....you shouldn't have any problems with Marc! It's the WC that I'd be concerned about! Don't get me wrong...whether it comes from Marc or someone else...a WC Ball is a WC Ball!! Ticks by the ton (unless Marc picks them off), USUALLY thin, but you can't beat the price if they all survive and start eating on their own!....ENJOY

Daniel - I've dealt with Mark on several occasions, and though he does have lots of disclaimers because he does sell many types of WC reptiles, his service and quality are outstanding. I've purchased some wonderful animals from him, and will continue to purchase from him without any reservations. <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>
