This probably won't help any, but I bought some reptiles at the Toronto show in Nov. all non CITES and when we got to the border I declared them to U.S. customs. The border guards (all very nice BTW) took one look at them scratched their heads and said "duh...we don't know". I provided them with all the scientific names and they decided to call the USFW and see if they could clear it through them. Well I guess being as it was a Sunday no one was working over at USFW. So after waiting approximately one-half hour the border guards told us to go on our way and have a nice day. Best part was they were so interested in our lizards and frogs that they didn't seem to notice that I forgot to declare all the other things that I had bought while in Canada.
