Sorry, I don't have any data on this topic, but I would be very interested in hearing the results of your project. Will your results be published? If I hear or come across anything I will keep you in mind.
:Apologies for cross-posting
:I'm working on a project examining the effects of take for the pet trade on native snakes in the U.S. Thus far we haven't come up with many documented examples of population declines due to overcollection, so I thought I'd cast our net a bit wider and start asking folks in herpetoculture.
:If you know of documented declines due to overcollection OR have personally observed declines you suspect to be due to overcollection, I'd appreciate a response. Identities of individuals will be kept confidential unless you indicate otherwise.
:Thanks very much.
