    They should do more than just fine the guy... as much as I love hognoses, I can't deny the damage they would do to the eco-system. All the smaller elapids would be knocked out of their niches and probably the geckoes too... :mad: It's these people that give the hobby a bad name.

    2K is hardly a take down. Someone in the dept probably stuffed something up and a heap of charges dropped or traded away otherwise it would of been something around 30k like what that other vic gtp keeper / importer got.

    Why not legalize exports of captive bred australian reptiles most are bred here in captivity to the point that it is becomeing impossible to sell some species, the rspca even has unwanted or confiscated reptiles for sale,would this make it less likely and lessprofit able for poachers to smuggle natives if there was a legitamate trade from captive bred?
