http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/2/15/mystical-amphibian-venerated-by-aztecs-nears-extinction.html Does being an owner of a pet that is endangered or threatened in its natural habitat make someone incapable of being an environmentalist? I found this article interesting because it forces owners of tropical fish / other animals to face the reality of their pet-owning. The business behind the collection and selling of exotic animals is shady to say the least - perhaps it's time it becomes recognized as a bigger issue.
