I was once offered c.b. savanna monitors in Canada for $25 each.

As it turns out, they were c.h. - which looks on paper kind of like c.b. - but does not mean the same thing, whatsoever. Actually, it means that eggs were taken from females and hatched in Africa and sent to Canada - and they come in to the U.S for cheaper than $14 each. There is a very large number of baby savannas shipped out of Africa that otherwise would be wild babies - it really sucks - I wish more people would devote the effort to actually breeding the things - before there are no wild females in Africa to collect eggs from.

Just thought maybe my story might have related, some how, remotely.
