They are appendix II. Without knowing the true origin, and having proof of the origin, its nearly impossible to get the cites export permits for them (atleast here).

:Can someone please explain to me the difference between schedule one and schedule two.

:I have a prehensile tailed skink...that I rescued from a pet shop.
:They claimed she is wild caught. I continued to go into the pet shop for about three weeks before I could stand it no longer and had to bring her home.
:She has gone through some bad sheds, and has lost many toes...she only has 2.5 left on both front feet combined.

:Anyway...over the three weeks that I was going in and checking on her...the shop's story changed. NOW she's all of sudden been brought in by a previous owner, who supposedly kept her on carpet fibre, and that's why her toes have come off.

:Frankly, I don't believe a word they tell me...I can SEE the bands of skin still on her toes!
:And I wonder if they know that there are some restrictions on how they acquire these animals.

:I live in Canada...I'm wondering what it would take to get her across the border into the U.S when I don't know the TRUE origins of the skink.

:Thanks...
