my local Pet Store has 6 red beardies in a ten gallon tank, and she will keep them there until sold if they are not all sold they will remain in a ten gallon tank and end up losing their tails, she has two without tails already.

Unfortunately, most pet stores only care about the money side of things.

that is true but if you think about it most people want a dragon with its full tail and all of its limbs

Just went to the Petco by where I live and they had about 6 dragons in a small 5 gallon tank. They all look pretty small too like 4-4.5 in.

that is also sad, but at least Petco has alot of people going in and out, and the people can see the dragons the lady at the local store has them in the back

That's horrible!

And when you think about it...They're actually losing money by not taking care of the animals. I mean, who wants to buy a pet from a place where they're not kept in proper conditions? Especially when they've been injured/have limbs and tails bitten off. Who wants a 60-90$ beardie and most likely have it die a week later, or have to spend hundreds of dollars on it for vet bills? So they're having these beautiful creatures die in the shop, which is pretty much wasted money for them.

I guess these managers just aren't thinking. Or like to see animals suffer. :/

Wonder what you can do to change their mind?
Newspaper? Contact local animal control?

I thought Petsmart and Petco were supposed to be the best pet stores

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
