Too me it seems almost unethical or irresponsible. Knowing how large something like that is going to get and that people commonly just turn them loose at a certain point. I think that probably very few people really keep any sort of "zoo" like conditions with a large enough habitat or inclosure.

Sorry to be a troll on this thread - I just think this is an interesting concept...
That is the problem with most pet stores.....they aren't concerned about the animal...only the profit. Pet stores sell hundreds of baby Iguanas every year with most buyers totally unaware of the large size they will eventually grow to. Same goes for fish, alligators, snakes, etc.
