If someone knows that a herp was obtained illegally, they should take that to law enforcement and it should be dealt with correctly. If you don't have proof of wrongdoing, you probably shouldn't make accusations. Suggesting that every baja rosy boa at a herp show is illegal is an unfounded accusation.


Actually, I think the burden of proof here lies with the breeders. I would love to see someone with a lot of Rosy lines try to trace their lineage back to legally collected specimens. Sure, some could do it, but most couldn't. I suspect there are widely bred localities that have never had snakes legally taken.

Can anyone honestly deny that the lineages of rosyboas on the market today contain large amounts of blood of poached snakes? Only naively, I think.

I think it sad that we as a hobby allow this illegal activity to be blended into the legal activity but then defensively resent the insinuations that it is going on.
