didnt read all of this thread, too long and seen it all before.
get a petition, find out who is trying to stop reptiles being kept. and find out why they are.
in england animals aid tried to ban all reptiles from being kept as pets, but their main objective is to stop all pets. including cats dogs, hamsters, everything. the best way to change things is to speak out, tell people what reptiles are, what they do and why they do it. make the general public see that reptiles are not slimy, sneaky killers. sounds easier said than done, but all it takes is one person to start the ball rolling
