i was considering buying a wild-caught asian vinesnake. I really would love to have one, but i feel like i will be supporting the very thing I have always opposed. I have mixed feelings on the subject because i have ball pythons, beardies, a tegu and a veiled cham who were all (at one point in their heritage) imported. My husband thinks I should wait until they are captive bred here in the states, but it seems like no one is making that effort. I see some people in the forums who claim to have wild-caught/imported animals and everyone keeps quiet about the taboo. What is your overall opinion about importation? Give me your thoughts because i am really torn here. Thanks for your thoughts. -K
