Because people are greedy...What happened with these guys anyway? The market used to be saturated with them. I can remember buying these things for as little as $2 a piece for as many as I could carry. It seems there used to be countless billions of these things, everybody had tons of them. How could a ban on exports raise the price as high as it has when there were so many of them already here? I understand that they are a highly desirable species but there were so many, and at any given time it seemed that most of the females out there were gravid most of the time. I know I'm exaggerating a bit but it seems to me that with so many in circulation, it should have taken quite a long time for the price to be as high as it is. Clearly I'm wrong but what happened to all the ones that were already being CB before the bans?
