My neighbor came over to my house and wanted to give my son a shark in a jar to him. This was a baby shark, a dead baby shark. I did not want my son to have this so I forced the lid open and laid the baby shark to rest and threw the jar in the trash. This is not no educational thing. This is animal abuse at its worse and this needs to be stopped. If this keeps happening these beautiful sharks will become extinct. Please this needs to be stopped.

This one company out of Florida had this to say:
Atlantic Coral Enterprise further claims: "All our merchandise has been cleared for legal entry into the U.S. by the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Department and U.S. Customs. We have all required governmental licenses and permits."
