Default Smuggling

Wanna learn some history about it?

Check out this book.
Amazon Amazon

Roman and Greg originally turned me onto it and I thought more people knew about this book and the story it covers, but some recent discussions on facebook made me realize maybe I was wrong.

It's a pretty quick read and it's a pretty enlightening story. From a hobby perspective, there are good things and bad things associated with a lot of the activities detailed in this book.

So, I'd absolutely encourage everyone to read it and form your own opinions. Feel free to share them here if you already have them... But keep it clean, this isn't the thunderdome

I'll have to check that one out, thanks.

On the same subject I can recommend
The Animal Connection The Animal Connection
, it was written in the late 70's so it might be a bit outdated but still a good read, though sickening at times

Just bought "The Lizard King" on Ebay for 4 bucks. Looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the recommendation.

I picked up "The Lizard King" at one of the reptile shows awhile ago and very much enjoyed the read. I don't often read nonfiction unless I'm doing research but this kept me captivated. Reminded me of "Catch Me If You Can" but focused around the exotic pet trade.

Smile Re: Smuggling

I remember hearing years ago about this book.
Wifey is looking for birthday suggestions for me!!

Although, every time I hear Lizard King is does remind me of Jim Morrison
