There is demand for "new" blood-lines or the "next big morph" in the pet trade.

Thanks for the info...I would think this is a case of "the exception proves the rule," in the sense that of the millions(?) of bearded dragon owners in the US, let alone around the world, a very, very, very small percentage take that kind of risk involved in traveling across the globe in the attempt to smuggle out protected species, ESPECIALLY given that the market value of WC, physically-indistinguishable specimens is comparatively low.

Personally, I don't think that if Oz were to turn around tomorrow and permit the export of bearded dragons, that numbers of such exports would skyrocket.

However, if we're talking NZ geckos...
