I agree, education is the key... If people don't understand what they're being asked, then how is a proper census supposed to be formed? They should have a list of the animals that THEY consider to be exotic...

Good idea, Gino, let's hope they take the advice.

I also agree with you Linds, although I do wish that animals never had to come from a bad place in the first place!! But since we know that can't be done, it is a good idea to ensure that it's not going to happen again. One day I'll buy a country and I'll adopt all animals and we'll all live happily ever after.... one day....

Anyway, I'd really like to know this woman's reasoning for being completely against all exotics, especially reptiles. Does she actually have people behind her, or is it just her taking a stand? I wonder if she truly understands what exotics really are. Some species of 'domestic' cats [I mean non-big cats, ie: lions, tigers... lol] are actually exotics, but they're no harder or easier to take care of than other cats... And why are people so against reptiles! Augh! If people don't like them, then fine, so be it... I'm not going to push on my interest onto them, but when they start to try to take away our source of interest then that's just not fair.

I don't know if I'm making any sense, I'm just completely annoyed by the whole thing.

Bottom line: Yes, Education really IS the key!


PS - Yes, Dan, we're all here to admire you...
