Reports on the compulsive pursuit of rare specimens that drives the black market in fauna. Exotic birds, reptiles and mammals are sold to wealthy buyers as pets and collectables, and animal body parts are sought after as ingredients in traditional medicine, as aphrodisiacs, or as exquisite dishes, and the rarer the breed, the higher the price paid.
