"anything to do with the outcome of a reptiles well being and the conservation of your natural wildlife and flora...is a part of the issue."

That's not my point. My question was meant to sound like "aside from banning the release of non-native wildlife, what more do you want". I wasn't trying to suggest that banning the release of non-native wildlife in Washington State alone should be enough for everyone. Maybe I should have made that more clear?

"i like this subject because its close to home. australian laws are so much more restricting and this is said without complaint. basically, a child cannot walk into a "pet shop" on a whim and buy a creature that requires specialized treatment. everyone who wants a reptile must apply for a license. do the research... set up accurately. choose the reptile and inform the National Parks and Wildlife Service. we then are open to spot checks from rangers (if youre not mistreating or lax you dont mind that)and each year we send our reps list including deaths and methods of disposal."

I hope the laws are just as restrictive for dog, cat, horse, goat, etc. owners in Australia. And I'm sure most people on this board will disagree with me, but spot checks are BS for many reasons. And just because someone doesn't want to let a government inspectors into their home doesn't mean they're mistreating their animals.

Would say more, but I don't think we're going to find any common ground.
