I did read through all of the legal documents on CITES, and CITES is managed differently in each nation. What you do in the USA is you purchase the animal from a breeder, the breeder then has to give you a signed document which you give to the government regulators and you import it as your "pet". You would have to do that for each animal. And you have to really trust the breeder.

This is done through the US Fish and Wildlife Service, who says:

"How long will it take to process my permit? We process applications in the order they are received. Please allow at least 30 days for processing. This time may be longer if your pet is a CITES Appendix-I species. We will contact you if we need more information to complete the processing of your application. An incomplete or unclear application will cause delay in processing. If you meet all of the issuance requirements, a permit will be issued. Your permit will be mailed to the address you provide on your application. If you want your permit express mailed, please provide a pre-paid label or credit card information (account number and expiration) for express delivery."



I guess I'll find out how easy or hard it is eventually. Anyways I found out there are Womas being bred here in WA state. How cool is that?
