Its CLEAR that people importing ILLEGAL reptiles into Hawaii has caused damage!
I can't beleive anyone into herps would be so inconsiderate of the ecosystem and not understand how people smuggling in pets could pose a problem!
All these people who thought "gee my cham won't hurt Hawaii I will bring them in!" WERE WRONG!
Do what you want and tell people what you want but anyone willing to add to a growing problem is not all out for herps in my opinion, they are out for themselves and what they can keep and thats' all they care about.
