Just curious what others think of some of these ads. Guys like animalmarkets are posting ads that have shipping spiders to the US for $20. Do most of the people that visit these boards understand that it is a not legal to do this. Some of these species are cites and you can do seroius jail time for importing without the proper paperwork. If I'm not mistaken I think it may even be a Lacey Act violation. This thread is more to warn people that you can import but must have all the proper paperwork. This includes bringing the spiders into a port of entry with US Fish & Wildlife inspection and customs. This shipping is done overnight via air cargo (much more expensive) and not some $20 illegal method.
