On sunday i bought 8 leopard geckos from ashley bridges at Northen Bred Geckos out of Londonberry,NH. She first was going to deliever them to my house which was in framingham,ma but then asked if i could meet her in burlington, ma which is 1 hr from my house. I was reluctant but said yes i could do that. So on sunday i went to pick them up, temps were under 40 and i know thats too cold but i figured, well we are in cars with heat so they should be good. I get there and meet her at the mall, i pay her the money for the geckos, she shows them to me to make sure they are all there which they were but i didnt really inspect them because it was too cold outside to take them out. I took them into my care which is a lexus suv, and placed them on the floor in the box and i had my heat up to 82 degrees. I drove like a grandma because i know i had geckos in containers and didnt make any kind of sudden stops or anything, just regular driving if a bit slower. So i get home, go up to my reptile room and take them out of the box and i lay them all seperate, i go to pick up my sunglow giant... and she dead.. i think damn shes sleeping good then after liek 5 seconds i realize shes dead.. i look at everyone else and notice that my male tangerine is very still, and i go to pick him up and he is just very stiff and obviously gone as well. My dilema right now is that i am dealing with this breeder who is supposedly reputable and honest, but she is refusing to refund me or give me other geckos. by law she is supposed to do this. she swears it had to be mishandling or they were burned but there is no way they could ahve been burned, and they have no signs of burns, and also i did not handle them or drive erratically so there is no way i mishandled them. the other 6 are fine and happy right now enjoying their quarantine. Ive called odd pets wildlife clinic which is amazing with reptiles and i asked if they could do a necropy but Dr. Mertz said they would not be able to tell anything really at this point and from the pictures i sent him he can almost completely rule out burning. i need opinions as to what everything thinks could have possibly caused these two to die. and also as a business do you agree that i should be refunded for two animals that did not even last an hour. at this point, i am ready to take her to small claims court not because of the money, but more on principle that she is not showing any business ethics or integrity. thanks guys. oh ps. she offered to give me discounts on future purchases.. like i would actually buy from her again !!!!!
