Animal and plant related items

The sale of live animals, certain animal parts and items is limited at Tradera.
This includes, but is not limited to, ivory.

Why do we have this rule?

The sale of certain animals, animal products and plants is regulated in Sweden, either because they are dangerous or because they are a protected species. Due to these reasons these sales are restricted at Tradera.
