In Reply to: Poll Question: Full ban on reptile importation? Yay/Nay? posted by BrianSmith on April 23, 2003 at 18:41:58:

I do think that the entire world's population of captive snakes is good enough to make sure there is always good blood, no inbreeding. Wild animals also often bring disease/parasites. So I'm kind of yay, we have lots, the wild populations are all going downhil, let them be.

But also nay on the ban. I think there are rare circumstances where an animal can, and should be brought into captivity. Such as an albino someone might happen across (rare but it happens), or some other wild looking, LIGHT colored/morph of a snake. It probably wont survive in the wild, and would have one hell of a happy life having it's food handed to them on a silver platter and having all the sex it wants ;) And every so often it's nice to see some new wild morph that is super-rare and takes forever to be aforable. It's almost what keeps this hobby _alive_ and going. The desire for some new morph and to earn a profit.

I don't think there will ever be an utter complete ban.

I think I'm 90% on Yay, a ban. But still... eh.. *shrug*
