not all cites 1 animals are really endangered anymore, for instance the argentine boa (B.c. occidentalis) is very common in the wild, it was originally placed on the cites 1 list because of the heavy skin trade exploitation. also A. dumerelli is not scarce in the wilds of madagascar, but due to certain governmental red-tape it has been placed on cites 1, mainly because the government knows that more and more natural land will be turned into farmland and others.cheers

for those interested u should have a look at this webpage.
