Because people like to show off to other people what they are not suppose to have, its the whole wow this illegal and i have one and you dont. If they had half a brain they would own a native one, but its more cool to have and illegal one.

doesnt annoy me really ****** me off, we got some of the best reptiles in the world and the bloody yanks have most of them, and this is coming from a kiwi who never saw a snake in his life and just fell in love with them.
lol Half the people on this site would most likely have or know someone that has them, and keep it to them selves there smart enough to keep them on the low.. I know plenty of people with exotics it's not exactly policed, I've been in the car with a mate that breeds corns, boas, has a trio of chameleons, crested iguanas the list goes on (not a "******" one of the nicest blokes you'll meet)we were pulled up for a random breath test he had 3 corns and 2 baby Agamas in the car going to sell them on our way into the city, the cop asked what we had in the pillow slips and why they were tied of with rubber bands he told the officer reptiles he thought he was full of it so asked us to open them up he shined his torch in had a look and told us to have a good night and let us go basically he didn't care or didn't know they were exotics..
The illegal pet trade is allot bigger then people think as long as there's demand and money to be made you can bet your bottom dollar that someones going to be supplying it.
I kinda lol about people getting all frothed up about exotics, majority have them and it is definitely not for the " oh look how ****** i am owning an illegal animal ". I know a few people that have them and care for them like they are part of the family, no big deal in my eyes but i am sure 70% of aps will disagree with me

Im pretty sure that that chick was just covering her own *** as far as that thread goes.
People sound suprised by the amount of exotics there are. Every time i mention to someone that I keep snakes i hear "do you want a corn snake i know a dude who has albinos for sale"...
Maybe its just sydney, but they definately seem to be easy to get.I held an Albino Olive and I LIKED it!!
Next on the wishlist: An Albino Darwin and an Albino Olive
you never know whats true and whats bullsh#t these days. so many people just say what they think sounds best. i personally wont do anything which puts my snakes in any bad position. y bother risking the fines and all of them taken away. i personally would be gutted if someone took my snakes
Most of the ones who brag are just tryhards, banging on about their imaginary animals. Funny how so many supposed reptile lovers are so accepting..you realise how most of these animals get here, and where they come from? I never hesitate to let anyone mouthing off about their exotics know what I think of them and let them know I'll be calling The Guberment. Of course actually doing that would be as useful as turning on the bat signal, but it always gets an amusing response.General Rule 5 -Posts must be meaningful and not waste the time of other site users.

I guess if they feel safe, and they don't tell you where they live why wouldn't they?
It's not hard to give a false name, have a private number and never be seen again to someone you only just met up with to buy a tank or a gecko from.If you love life, don't waste time, as time is what life is made up of
There are more exotics here than anyone can imagine. Bit like jags, they are here to stay. No use getting your knickers in a knot over it. Sad part about it is, when they do get confiscated in some drug raid or whatever, they get euthanised and that is sad. Down here some chameleons got confiscated ( a baby one as well as an adult) all euthanised. So, you are not doing the animal any favours if you get caught.
