: Basically the process starts out in the country of origin. The animals are either collected or farmed there.
: The animals are then acquired by an exporter who must fill out the required paperwork to export the specific species to the US.
: The exporter then ships to a US importer who normally is a wholesaler.
: The wholesaler then wholesales to a retailer.
: The retailer to the pet owner.
: I could go on all day long about the details but each species is quite different in many respects.
: The animals are normally shipped via airway to minimalize the shipping times. The collectors are normally paid very little, in respect to the final price paid by the pet owner.
: The importation process has to ability to have many pitfalls along the way, but is normally handled effectively by most professionals.
: Hope this helps
