There has been a ban on importing them, selling them are fine as long as they are not wild caught, i heard about this in early to mid july 2010

Interesting, and good. They're so easy to breed it's silly importing them.

I'm glad I gont my hands on an emperor before they run out. Ive been noticing a switch from emps to asian forest scorps in most stores. Probably due to this ban.

Asian Forest Scorp is now going to fill the emp. niche with more additude.

Also I thought it was a temporary ban while they took a census on how the species wild numbers were doing then they will decide the fat of the importing? Cant remember where I heard this but I could have swore that I did.
