The problem is, many otherwise protected animals are coming in from Europe with fake paperwork saying they are captive bred - when really they were smuggled out of their native country to Europe and passed around to hide the trail, and long enough to make up some paper work, and then sold into the US market. It is being done with numerous endangered animals that would otherwise not be allowed to be imported into the US. When buying an animal imported from Europe, especially one this rare, it is wise to be very careful who you are buying from.
They are very pretty animals though, San Antonio zoo has a couple on display.

Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
