Hi Mampam,

This is a question appealing to the sensitive side of monitor keepers, so your answer in my home is "frog no" you can't skin and eat my lizards. But, we all know the real problem is bulldozing the habitat- in forests, cutting all the trees out and flattening the land. The remaining animals are then killed out by the people(dogs,cats)tending the land. There are situational surviving species but for the most part, that is how it goes. If the habitat is maintained and supported, it hurts nothing to selectively collect a reasonable number of a species. But again, preserving and maintaining the habitat then determining real numbers annually. The problem is you get the sensitive opinions and on the opposite side the greedy opinions. The numbers collected need to be supported by real insensitive, ungreedy science. Heck, there are even methods to increase species numbers by supporting them in areas of collection but the habitat must remain strong to do so... So Daniel, you are an intellectual- I have read your books and literature... How do you suppose this should be done effectively in the places you have been?
