I would take a long hard look at importing animals these days. It used to be that you HAD TO import animals in order to keep up, but there are so many CBB animals these days it might not even be worth it.

I can remember a time in the trade where all of your burms, retics, and balls were imported. Burms and retics that would want to F you up, and balls that would eat three or four times a year LOL. Now, you have SO MANY people breeding these herps.

If you have a certain species that you want to work with that you can't get CBB, then I would say go for it. If you don't have anything specific in mind then I would say forget it.

Take it from me from personal experiance its a harder than thought process with semi strict guidelines....There's a decent amount of paperwork and thats the easy part... You would have to find contacts in the country you wish to Import from (an Exporter) Which No one is going to just give you them... Then you have to deal with Customs and the Airport to get your shipment to clear so you can pick up the items... theres designated ports to go through you can apply for a special port permit but thats not a guarentee that your going to get it and if thats the case and you dont live near the port you either have to get someone you trust near the port and have them ship the items to you or pick them up yourself.... I hope this helps some feel free to contact me if you have farther questions...
