That really ticks me off (and i'm already rather unstable... just ask )
We don't know squat (or not much) about the mimic but that poor creature has the misfortune of being cool. It's likely to die quickly.
So why the **** buy it?! I can understand why ppl sell it, it's good money and it doesn't make sense to pass it up. But if nobody buys the mimic then there is no point for shops to offer it. Same with whale products, ivory, fur, whatever...
As I was saying, the most sought after species are usaully the rarest and the most hard to keep, cause it is "cool" to keep exotic species and it show that's you 'sucessful' IF you can keep a rare sepcies.
As I always say, the media controls the public.
I have been away from tonmo for a while now and just got back in with my new bimac I saw that mimic and if it wasnt for the price I would have bought it thinking its just like keeping a bimac . Is it realy that hard to keep alive
