It was reported that the Kuala Pilah Snake Farm keeps and breeds the yellow anacondas, a giant snake from South America. The risk of snake escapes from the captivity and breeding in the wild is there. For instance, Burma pythons escaped from a snake farm in Florida during a cyclone have caused ecological disaster in North America.

Although piranha already in the total import ban list. But there was unreported case where a piranha was caught in Muar river after some irresponsible fish hobbyists released the fishes into the river.

Thus, anaconda should be listed as a total import ban species coupled with the full enforcement to avoid any potential ecological disaster to our native species.
