i just posted this on another forum....
We (The Reptile Nation) are not a big enough entity to affect any future outcome of any elections. Therefore we don't really matter. The ones who make the laws know this...one bad apple (Florida) spoiled the bunch and it wasn't their fault...they just happen to have the perfect environment. We lost 4 species and there will be more to come. I just wonder if it is worth the funds to chase the 4 or focus on the rest to hit the list. I know that overturning the ruling of the 4 would be a major victory but very expensive.

The Ball Python nation is the largest there is in the snake market and probably in the reptile industry all together....but the only ones interested in overturning the ruling are the BP breeders that have something on the list.
There are thousands of BP breeders in the US and if they all came together and donated the price of a pastel female ($100.00) then you would have enough to fight....but it is not going to happen until they see a list from the Gov't listing them as an invasive.

You would not believe the number of breeders and collectors and owners of reptiles that I have contacted in the last few days that had no idea about the ban and really didn't give a crap because they didn't own any on the list.

I am not saying I am giving up...never was that type of person...but I feel like we are playing a game of chess with very few pieces fighting a full board on the other side and all I keep hearing is "CHECK".....
