Hi,     Brazil could put a ban on collecting, but all this would do is make it
attractive to non-collectors. If it is illegal and hard to get that is when people

what to own it. Laws do nothing to stop this type of thing. ( drugs are still
coming to the U.S. in record numbers) What is killing off their Exotic
Species is deforestation not collectors. I also sense anger in your
article. I collect insects and to tell you the truth i could not give them
away outside of this mail-server.           feeling at peace,      mark j.
