I've heard very contradicting opinions from people that dealt with lllreptile, I don't recall ever dealing with them. Yeah the "underweight" issue would absolutely be a flag to me also, but I don't think that if they came from Africa, somebody would clean them up enough so that 'no' red dirt could be seen. I don't think that kind of person would be that savvy but maybe. They don't all come from areas that have red dirt of course but that was common back in the day. My best guess is that somebody didn't take care of their imperators, lost interest and sold or traded with lllreptile and a company like that doesn't have time and, unfortunately, the interest to take care of the animals they are responsible for, ...just looking for a $. Personally, I wouldn't give a diddly, you have them, bought them, blow the guilt propaganda and try to breed if you want.
