Know I first must concede this that yes there is ahuge problem with reptile importation so much so it is not even funny. Second yes there are there warehouses out there that handle herps just wrong. However, without importation there are nof fresh genes no fresh genes equal no genetic diversity that yeilds inbreed lines. It would also mean no crazy color morphs that drive the herp movement morethen anything. Now before i get pounced on yes, people do inbreed for morphs but, (i hope)most people know enough to outcross there morph every generation or so. Importation is cruel and unfair but, to stop it is gonna hurt. It may not be me or you but itcould be other herpers down the line. To say ya or nay is like to say hey what do you think of death everyone hates it but evryone knows it does happen and must. There is a more resonible solution is that is to buy cb whenevr you can but if you need WC atleast go through a reputiable dealer like GHERP,Bushmaster or Central Coast and stray away from shady McSheister

Hey thats my 2 cents i might already be preaching to the converted

-PEACE
