i have done some research regarding the brown tree snake in guam. i have learned that the introduction of this species was most likely accidental, brought on by the use of guam as a station during WWII. (they were stowaways on military cargo ships.) due to few predators, the snake population has now reached up to 13,000 per square mile!!!!
see the source @ http://www.invasivespecies.gov/profiles/bts.shtml
(or via link below)
(however, many species have indeed been introduced to combat other introduced species, and the cycle goes on...)
from the guam example, i totally understand why hawaii, australia, and new zealand would have such laws, but opinion remaining, it still sucks for me. (being from minnesota, i REALLY want to move to some warm or tropical locale... *sigh*)
anyone have any suggestions for iguana-friendly, warm/tropical, liberal places-- preferrably outside the US?
