Your friend better check again. Fedex has a dedicated live animal department and has arranged contracts with reptile shipping companies.My biggest concern lies in exactly how transporting these creatures is going to be done since FedEx expressed to my friend that they've got a policy against live animals
20 years is merely the maximum sentence. It is likely he never see a day in prison. Fines, probation, and no imports are all likely punishments. It costs money to jail someone why do that for a first time offender that is a foreign national.I think 20 years is a rather stiff penalty, but I don't believe Sven is the only person who is capable of providing captive bred stock, nor that he should go unpunished for this. I know a lot of people admire what he's done, and that he's probably done a great deal in terms of increasing the captive bred stocks of T's we all want to own, but this doesn't mean he's above the law or that this isn't detrimental.
