>>The problem with the wild bird act is it was put in place by big bird breeders to increase the price and keep out cheeper imports and protect there market. It only covers parrots and gives almost no room for importing new blood. The variety of reptiles kept is 100 times that of birds and not all reptiles are ready to be captive bred in any numbers. The terrif could be adjusted to on each type of animal to keep the number of imports down but still not stop anyone from importing them. This would also be a boom the reptile breeding of the cheeper animals.

Actually it was pretty much FORCED on the breeders-large and small-as a compromise to allow them to continue to have a hobby.

As I said above, Tariffs and taxes are, at the moment, pretty much a non-starter in Washington. Yes, they would encourage the breeding of cheaper reptiles to an extent-but a "Wild Reptiles Conservation Act of 2011" would not just encourage breeding, it would make it mandatory, if we wish to continue our hobby. It would also raise prices for all breeders, large or small, and all reptiles, cheap or expensive.
