Advertising for commerce is not permitted on Annelida, which is for science-related discussion. The above was allowed for its news interest only.
Transport of live alien organisms, involving importing them to new countries, is strictly controlled by many governments, for obvious reasons. If anyone is interested in importing live Malaysian leeches please check with your appropriate border control agency first to find out if it can be done legally.
