> And would you be OK if I got a permit instead of you?
Yes

>Would you be happy just buying CB babies from me and being denied the opportunity to go down and collect your own?
Uh, yes. That is the case. I'm perfectly content getting CB babies from the currently available LEGAL lines. If you know of some that are illegal, and have a reason to feel that way other than a tingling spidy sense, you should speak up about that particular case to the proper authority.

I'm just not convinced that there are hordes of people risking so much to harvest boas from mexico just to sell the offspring for $40. In this day and age, it's just not financially feasible to be a rosy boa poacher. In the past I've had mexican rosy boas, all were legal, and ALL WHERE GIVEN TO ME FOR FREE. It's obviously a big dollar market we have here.

CB mexican rosy boas are not illegal. You can argue that they should be, and where the burden of proof ought to be all day long... the fact is that they aren't illegal.
They're in pet stores all across america and no one cares, because it's simply not a real risk to the wild population.

You guys act like there's a royalty on the current CB population. Like for every baby boa sold for $40, a dollar goes to the poachers of america fund.
