Underwater tribbles that sweat bubbles but don't purr.

twomutts: destrip: I for one don't have a problem with this. Invasive species are a menace, and once established they are almost impossible to get rid of. Here in the US, just a few have become major problems: Argentine and red imported fire ants, Quagga mussels, "killer" bees, and tamarisk (which squander water supplies in arid areas.) "Garden" snails were introduced by people importing them to cultivate escargot. There are many more that I can't think of right now.

She was warned, too, and kept selling the stuff before they nailed her. Hopefully a lesson was learned.

Yup, the list goes on and on. Buckthorn, kudzu, asian carp, snakeheads, gypsy moths... There's a reason for the laws.

Nobody wants snakeheads. They don't play baseball, they don't wear sweaters, they're not good dancers, they don't play drums!

vastcat: It is difficult to keep track of what plants and aquatic species are legal. Some are totally banned, some require a permit, some you're allowed to keep but you're not allowed to sell or transport, some you're only allowed to sell in-state. The thing that makes it even more difficult is that every state has their own laws and different banned species.

THIS, there are also some species that captive breed is ok but imported wild caught is verboten
