Hong Kong International Reptiles Expo

epa02825982 A girl points at a reptile during the 'Hong Kong International Reptiles Expo', in Hong Kong, China, 16 July 2011. There is no Chinese licensing system in place to combat the international trade in endangered reptile, amphibian and insect species. China is fast emerging as a growth market for pet reptiles and amphibians. A growing trade in smuggled wild reptiles is contributing to global biodiversity loss. China's insatiable demand for traditional medicines, exotic pets, and culinary delicacies is driving a multibillion-dollar business, some legal and some illegal, that is emptying forests, jungles and fields around the world. The reptile show runs in Hong Kong from 16 until 18 July 2011 with more than 50 exhibitors from around the world displaying around 20,000 animals. EPA/ALEX HOFFORD
