:Some breeders use ID numbers simply to track their charges and identify lineage. Are you even sure these "numbers" on your receipt have anything to do with CITES?
:Original CITES export numbers should be traceable with some work. You would first have to know the country of issue, and contact the CITES administrator there.

:It shouldn't be hard to guess at the origin of your P. Regius
:To start with CITES would only be relevent to an imported specimen. If it was indeed imported, then it is probably
:a Togo Captive Hatched, if it's a hatchling, or a wild caught if it's an adult. They are imported by the thousands every year from both Togo and Ghana.
:They land in quantity at only a few bucks each, then they are jobbed out to various wholesalers and eventually the pet trade.

:If the snake was captive produced domestically in the US, there would be no CITES reference unless the breeder was making reference to the founder stock
:and this is highly unlikely

:
::No, I don't have the actual document. I just have the its "ID" written down on the sales receipt. Is there a way of knowing it from these numbers/letters without the document itself?
