However, there are afew species kept by reptile owners that are imported on a daily basis. These animals are classified as (WC) or Wild-Caught Animals and means that the animal was taken out of its natural habitat and brought into the pet-trade for reselling. Wild-Caught Animals are always in poor condition health-wise and require an immeidate vet trip upon being imported. Wild-Caught Animals are only to be bought by individuals who have experience with keeping the species that was imported and have purchased wild-caught animals in the past.
