There's nothing funny about this situation!It brings bad press to our hobby and is not good at all!Ive heard a lot of rumours about a certain dealer in California involved with smuggling so perhaps they will be getting in trouble soon to :X

i never knew that the brachypelma sp. were protected... so i guess most of the slings to juvie brachypelmas in the hobby are CB?

out of curiosity, does anyone know specifically what sp. of tarantulas are endangered?
