I have always felt that no matter what kind of creature a pet store sells, there should be someone working there that is knowledgable on them. So many pet stores I've seen sell tarantulas and know nothing about them and don't even want to touch them. My beef now is with my local PetCo. They usually have the basic T's, ( rose hairs, red knees and pink toes). My store had a pink toe that was obviously a mature male that looked like he molted some time ago. He looked bad and I told one of the employees that if I were them, I would'nt sell it since it would'nt live much longer. They told me they would let management know, well three days later he is still there on display. I told another employee today and he said " oh well, those things don't live very long anyway". Needless to say, I won't be buying any animals at PetCo any time soon.
