Ants are more closely related to wasps than they are to termites which are more closely related to cockroaches. In fact, their common ancestors split off 170 million years ago.

I want to remind people or maybe learn people that you CAN'T pick up a frog with your bare hand. They will absorb the chemicals lingering on your hands and maybe they will scream because they feel frightened and stressed. And if you want to pick up a frog, please wash your hands, wear disposable gloves and don't squeeze too hard.

California Man Pleads Guilty For Role in Scheme to Smuggle Endangered and Vulnerable Turtles from the U.S. To China

https://www.justice.gov/usao-or/pr/california-man-pleads-guilty-role-scheme-smuggle-endangered-and-vulnerable-turtles-us

EUGENE, Ore.— A Chinese national residing in Los Angeles pleaded guilty today for his role in a scheme to purchase hundreds of endangered and vulnerable turtles in the U.S. and smuggle them via U.S. mail and commercial airline flights to China.

Yuan Xie, 30, pleaded guilty today to one count of conspiring to smuggle goods from the U.S.

According to court documents, beginning in at least May 2017 and continuing until October 2018, Xie conspired with another Chinese national, Xiao Dong Qin, 35, of Shanghai, China, to purchase more than 769 live turtles from reptile dealers in Alabama, California, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, Nevada, North Carolina, and South Carolina. All of the turtles purchased and smuggled by Xie are protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.

A two-year investigation by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) revealed that in an 18-month period, Xie facilitated the purchase and transportation of approximately 134 Florida box turtles, 178 eastern box turtles, 127 North American wood turtles, 220 spotted turtles, 77 diamondback terrapins, 25 three-toed box turtles, seven yellow-blotched map turtles, and one Blanding’s turtle from his former residence in Eugene, Oregon. USFWS investigators determined the cost of the turtles involved in this investigation exceeded $150,000 and estimated the market value was more than double that amount in the Chinese pet trade.
