Eddie Markward

As some of you know, my husband and I entered into a partnership with Eddie Markward at the beginning of December 2014. We agreed to terms that both parties found fair. Eddie agreed to take in our collection and care for them until we were able to have them again. My husband is active duty military and got reassigned. Due to the move and us expecting our first child, we felt it would be easier if our animals went to Eddie and would benefit from sharing males/females. After an unfortunate event and learning our animals were very small for their age, we decided to head out to Georgia to pick them up. Upon seeing our animals, I was in shock and at a loss for words. I will leave this here and answer any questions that I need to. I hope that the pictures can speak for themselves.

First pictures are of one of my 2010 female fires. weighed 808g when I picked her up. She was 1300-1400g when he got her in Dec 2014

We had been asking for pictures and weights for months on a few snakes. I finally got him to send me a picture of two 2014 hatches that I was wanting to trade for some other animals from a friend. When he sent pics and weights, that's when we found out. The two in question was our kingpin ghost female that we hatched in 2014 and a dreambee female I got from Breeder's Circle. He said the kingpin ghost weighed 120g and the dreambee 180g. Both of these animals were at least 75 g when he got them in December of 2014.

All were infested with mites. Some had them worse than others.

I am at a loss for words. In the past Eddie has seemed like a decent guy, but there is no excuse for the condition of these animals. Do you have any pictures of them from before you left them in his care?

So much for his standing as a "good guy" in the hobby.

Eddie, please, say something...anything....This is a complete shock to see something written like this about you. I never ever would have expected to see a negative post about you. What in the world happened?
