I second Oregonherps' thoughts on WC. On the one hand I greatly applaud you for only seeking CB out... it sounds like you have a moral principle to only buy CB--is that true? If so, that is commendable, and very important for some people to stay firm on that principle...

That said, if you look at it from another perspective... once the individual animal is caught, there is no way that individual will go back to the wild. If you really love the species then you can think of buying a WC animal as kind of like a rescue... How many Schneider's skinks get bought up by people who have no idea what they are doing and end up killing it through improper husbandry or neglect? Especially since they are one of the cheaper animals and are known to be "handleable". If you are committed, you will be making a difference for that individual.

And yet, I can totally understand wanting to say, "No, I don't want to support the reptile-catching industry AT ALL!" Probably a moral dilemma that all herp-nuts have to face at one point or another.
