I saw this guy in Daytona. He was with a group from Brazil and I over heard someone asking him how he was going to get the animals back to Brazil. Guess we now know the answer.

I agree more with Robs responce. Not a good thing. Florida is already fighting Burms and retics loose in there ecosystem, and not happy about it. This just adds fuel to the fire of those opposed to reptile keeping.

I'm glad to hear that they didn't destroy the snakes.

This guy was buying some pretty pricey snakes. I heard a vendor telling him that he could have it shipped through an international service but the guy said no several times. I remember turning to my wife and saying "he is smuggling". I guess I was right.

What a shame. I agree though, I'm glad the animals weren't destroyed. They did nothing wrong here. :/ Like reptiles need more bad press in FL. Ugh.
