Rob-

I take your point, but you are wrong about the Standings day gecko, monkey tail skink, and even Parsons chameleon (though there are much fewer of these) Certainly there are more than enough of the first two in breeding situations right now to assure we won't lose them (Parson's are more problematic).

One of the big problems in herpetoculture right now is low prices for all but high-end animals, forcing breeders to get out of the business or to not breed less expensive/lower demand animals. A strict import regulation would solve that very quickly.

Perhaps I misremember about the Bird Act-I'm getting my info from my wife, who was breeding quite a few parrots at the time.
