The actual fact is DOE lied their guts out to get these new laws in. The Herp Societies committee were told it was only going to be a guideline, then after talks ceased they increased the sizes and made it Mandatory Then they lied to the Minister by telling her these new laws had the full backing of the societies, so they were passed. These laws may not effect you at the present time, but here is some food for thought. In a few years every cage size could be increased again, effecting everyone. At the present the laws may put most breeders out of business. This may make some people happy, but if no breeders there will be very few hatchlings available. Prices will skyrocket. Only the very wealthy will be able to afford them. The hobby could crash. We need to nip this in the bud. Everyone should send a letter to the Minister of Environment. She is unaware there is a problem but a few thousand letters should indicate to her there is a serious problem with the new laws. Failing this, the media should be contacted.
