    Yes, it was difficult to lose them. As for the "why"... well, you can't really argue with people who don't think that we should "exploit" animals by keeping them - that feeding, housing and caring for an animal is somehow abusing it by not allowing it to be free. As for the ban... well, they'd find it easier to just make it incredibly difficult and expensive to SELL animals - or require expensive licences to BREED animals - which would prevent new ones from being born, transported or sold. Once you do that... all you have to do is wait for the existing animals to die.

    It is a possibility. There were a number of species that were banned from private ownership unless you could prove one of several difficult-if-not-impossible things (captive breeding, legal import or import prior to 1993 - official documents for which have never been made available) and it's entirely possible for it to go further. We had to give up three of our personal pets because of this particular legislation... so the threat of a ban is real. All they have to do is whittle it down species by species. Start with European Protected Species Act animals, then move to CITES Annex I, then CITES Annex 2, then "Anything that gets over six feet long" ... and you've eliminated a massive number of species kept by hobbyists.
