Earth’s earliest reptiles survive ice age; need rescue when domesticated by man

-Posted by D.C. Worth, for Barbay (France/US)

Interesting little video clip shows some of earth's oldest species, surrendered by owners or seized by law enforcements; as were on their way toward being euthanized... Until a non-profit group in Phoenix, Arizona set up a rescue, placing 48 alligators in educational facilities across the United States.

The Phoenix Herpetological Society continues to relocate alligators, lizards, snakes, turtles and tortoises... Taken from wild, as pets...

With their evolution virtually "unchanged" after impacts such as "ice age"... Species taken from the wild, become a species no longer able to cope with their own survival. What's the long-term effect, out of their instinctual environment? Will species retain abasic site against the alkylation?
Odd comparison, but in its own way, attributes some of the same effects of the failed "socialist state"... haha.
