Mexico doesn't use a digital wildlife trade database. So the paper records can be more easily forged, as we see these days. There should be some clarity coming down the pike here before long though. But longer term solutions are going to require better cooperation with EU Countries like Germany, Spain, Canada, etc that are knowingly laundering trafficked wildlife, and the Mexico authorities that are not cooperative either.
Notice all the herps that are being trafficked thru Nicaragua these days. Basically Mexican smugglers taking advantage of the political chaos in Nicaragua. There is no doubt the smugglers are trafficking herps from other CA countries as well. All legal because they are "not CITES". I think a shoe will drop soon. I hope they drop on sites like this one, morph market, etc that facilitate illegal wildlife trafficking.
