There are interesting ways around the dumb laws (Sri Lankan Pokie vulnerability is due to habitat loss--not opportunists picking up a wild specimen), but just don't get caught. The fine is hefty. An illegal shipment was tagged in Florida recently and was eventually sent to multiple zoos after an investigation. The fine was $50,000 for each spider. OUCH.
In fact, it is because of the CB hobby that these beautiful arachnids alive and well. Leave it to the Feds to screw things up. God Bless Europe, Asia, and Australia. Their laws aren't so draconian.
Link please!!! Must READ!!!
Found it. I was thinking it was poecies, lol....but it was only 8 spiders and they were confiscated from the house of an importer.
