Leapin’ lizards! Remember to choose wisely.

I’ve written about the world of illegal wildlife smuggling in past posts.  And here’s proof that we can’t assume the problem is solved – during a recent seizure of illegally traded wildlife at Heathrow airport, over 165 critically endangered geckos were found!

Many of us enjoy owning reptiles as pets, but remember to always ask about the source of these animals.  Never buy animals that were wild-caught.
