DOES ANYONE KNOW IF AUS,HAS A TOTAL BAN ON EXPORTING INSECTS?
That is my understanding also, at least as far as private citizens and the pet trade is concerned. There may be permits that allow zoos and museums to exchange livestock, however.Originally posted by atavuss

Well I know there are a few exporters that have permission to export insects (live stock) from Aus. A friend of mine is a importer, I will ask him for the addresses. If anyone are interested - mail me private.

Wow, thanks for clearing that up...I was under the impression that the export ban applied to all wildlife, but I guess it's only vertebrates, or is there a simmilar arrangement for them as well?
Thanks Lelle, I hope so too! As for the ban on the Hexathelids, it would be a very, VERY long shot, but you never know.Originally posted by Crotalus
Thanks Steve for your post. I just hope you get the license to export theraphosids! And I hope some day the ban on hexathelids will be lifted ;-)
