They are, and even though some people have success in breeding them, there are still huge WC exports to Europe.I never knew smithis were endangered, because they are so readily available up here. But perhaps they are in the wild.. Just never thought of it.. Same with regalis, really.. Buut there you go! You learn something everyday.
Hey, I'm not doubting it, just never crossed me mind, as my petshop has 15 smithis and 6 regalis in various sizes. But it definetly makes sense, when I actually put some thought into it. I just never did..They are, and even though some people have success in breeding them, there are still huge WC exports to Europe.
Definately.. If you filter, on the left hand side, on Taxonomy and navigate through Animalia, Arthropoda then Arachnida you can see that most of the Poec's are on that list tho many are in "decreasing" status..Does anyone know or can find info on whether or not Poecilotheria are included on CITES? All I can find is the proposal to include them.
Doesn't appear so..Is the redlist and CITES the same thing? All brachypelma are on the CITES II list and only one (the smithi) is on the redlist. So are pokies on CITES II?
