Non-Chelonian reptiles in the markets

Bungarus fasciatus - Banded krait

100 RMB/Kg ($13 US)

Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, Viet Nam

Banded kraits and many banded kraits were available in massive quantities as can be seen below.  While each of these krait species have a very wide range, the sheer numbers available in the markets must be placing wild populations under some intense pressures.
