    I don't know if this is the right sub forum but if it isn't I'm soory.

    There is a shady dealer here in Pomona/Chino/Upland area. He sells animals who are sick and for cheap. I was really close to buying from this indiviadual but searched online and realized he was someone to avoid at all costs. He sell tortoises, iguanas, birds, and chinchillas who are all sick and most die after a couple days/weeks. I just want to warn anybody in the area to avoid this scammer.

    Here is a link to someone who has been scammed

    Damn! I just bought two sulcata hatchings from "Max" at King Chinchilla yesterday for a cheap price. He seemed so nice. Pretty sure a refund is not an option now. Im not really an expert to determine if theyre actually healthy or not. I would take them to a vet but Im on a budget right now. Do you think ask8ng online would help like a tortoise care facebook group?

    What's wrong with asking here? Post a thread in the sulcata section with nice pictures of the two and we'll give you our honest opinions.
