Beside illegal wildlife trade, legal trade also damaging the biodiversity in Africa. between 2011-2015 in sub-Saharan African, 2,7 minion of wild animals were traded legally; including 1.2 million of animal skins from animals like the Nile crocodile, the Cape fur seal, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, the African elephant and the common hippo; also, around 1.5 million of live animals like the ball python, the African grey parrot, the emperor scorpion, the leopard tortoise, and the savannah monitor lizard were legally trade as pets. whether these animal were wild-caught or captive-breed, these trades are causing harm and threats to the animal and biodiversity.
