#1 Animal rights bozos have made it very difficult to legally import and export many kinds of animals. The obvious result is that animals are the third most smuggled item in the world (behind cash and drugs). There is a huge amount of money involved--collectors pay top dollar for rare species.

So whenever you read about someone getting caught in an airport with snakes in his pants, go smack a PETA member.
