The problem with the Zebra finches is that they were established in the pet trade before Australia stopped exporting animals (the mid 1970s if I remember correctly).
Bearded dragons were brought to the USA from Germany where hobbyists had offspring from animals either released to the public from Zoos or were animals that had been confiscated and released to the public thus legalizing them. (The same has occured for any number of species from Phyllobates terriblis to Varanus gillini.)

As there have been no legal Typhlonectes imported in the USA or released to private hands then if you sell/trade them and USF&W so chooses to enforce the law, you are in trouble.

If you buy a stolen TV from someone and then are busted selling a stolen TV are you any less at fault?
