In this we agree, there should a very tight limit on imports(not a ban) which would force them to be bred in captivity. As it is, the governments evolved, are playing politics over conservation.

In otherwords, its an important part of the exporting countries economy. So they do NOT want that limited.

What escapes the conversation is, its been sustainable. So whats the problem??????

We are a bit romantic because its about varanids, if it was about say, Deer in our country, would we feel the same? They are shot by the zillions, and they are free ranging. But we have no problems with that. Cheers
