Hahaha, dyslexics can't post but animal traffickers can?

Postby ISZY » Thu Jul 11, 2013 7:34 pm

So me being dyslexic and having difficulty with typing always gets me in trouble, but I see a post right now on the front page where illegal animals (which are blacklisted locally) are being bred. The poster is clearly bragging. Don't you find this funny?

Are you talking about the axolotls? Cause they are not Illegal to own, even though they are illegal to sell and transport...

BV correct me if I'm wrong but axolotls don't follow the same specifications as other amphibians do.

You may not sell them, no money may trade hands but you may trade, swop or give them away.

And as Lillypod stated, you may not transport them over province lines.

I have heard about the ruling where no money may trade hands. What is the logic behind that?

Does anyone have a link to the regulation controlling axolotls or is this all hearsay?

Hey ISZY, I see nothing wrong with either your Grammar or Spelling.

It's a miracle Iszy ! You've been cured of dyslexia ! Once an "illegal" topic or ad pops up your spelling and grammar miraculously improves haha...

Just messing around with you bud...

Okay, Iszy you must have a permit then for the axolotl you keep? which I had to give you a lift to collect? and the axolotl hatchlings I had to look after while you were overseas? Maybe youre not in the position to point fingers?

please share your secrets on how you get permits so easily( sarcastic tone)

Mmm just maybe this topic headline is a bit harsh? :!: :?: Breeding of an endangered species should be commended (if the purpose is honorable) not trolled..... :smt018

Genetically the axolotls that are kept as pets differ from those in the wild (it is said that they might have been hybridized many generations ago), so really not the "breeding of an endangered species".

Axolotls are perfectly legal unlike other amphibians, and as metioned before, the purchase/money trading hands and transport over state lines is illegal. I wouldn't call the breeding of Captive specimens helping an Endangered species, as the genetics of captive species differ from the wild ones. I think this was covered in one of Nick Bakers Weird Creatures

ISZY why would you call them animal traffickers? These are local bred animals. Are you then also an animal trafficker and should we stop you from advertising or even just being on the forum?

Dont stir just because you can. If you know how many adverts we remove daily you will be surprised.
