Is this connected, ie a reaction to, in anyway to the issues earlier this

year regarding the collection of the fossil snake from Brazil that ended up

in Germany? I mean I can agree that museums should be respecting the laws

of other countries when obtaining specimens. But reactions can go too far

also. We still need reasonable access to specimens.

 

Cheers, Scott
