"BROWN-BOXING": This is an illegal activity when a U.S. buyer purchases from a foreign seller wildlife and has the shipment received in the postal mail without declaring the contents to U.S. customs and U.S. Fish & Wildlife. People do this to get around not having to pay expensive, but legally required import costs,and/or to acquire illegal species and/or to gain an advantage in the commercial market by not having import cost overhead. It hurts our hobby and trade. Do NOT buy from people that do this.
