While it is not a complete impossibility that some Aussie animals may be smuggled, it isn't likely that you will find one in a store. Pet stores have their sources, their regular distributors and private breeders that keep their shelves stocked. The most common Aussie animals that are in the pet trade have very little dollar value as well, such as Beardies and Spotted Pythons, and are easily enough reproduced in captivity, making smuggling these animals simply not worth it.
