So now it has become a partisan issue, most unfortunate. My biggest fear has been that anti-envoronmentalist politicians would point to the junk science that is behind so many bad herp regulations and use it to discredit legitamate science. But the line appears to be drawn in the sand and it's clear that environmentalists want nothing to do with herpetoculturists.

What is sad is that most reptile owners seemed willing to conceed that exotics are, or could be, a problem in Florida but USFW wanted to enact nationwide bans in states where they are not even a problem, using junk science for a massive power grab. I think we could have worked something out on Florida but the USFW is just too greedy and wants too much.
