I watch a cooking show based in Thailand and seeing some of the natural sites of the area appeals to me as well. I would LOVE to visit a few betta farms as well. I wouldn't bother to try to get the fish back myself either, since they do ship so often I would just see if I could buy them and have them ship them when I could receive them in the states. Other then that you would have to research the laws regarding if and how many bettas you could bring back with you on a trip on your personal self.
There is info out there too on the net on how to become a transhipper but it's a pain in the tookus. And there may not be a way to get around the transhipper part in the US. Hope someone who knows for sure can answer you :) Otherwise GL in your research!!! :)
Having mantis eat mice... well maybe I should import some of those mantis next time I have to move to a mouse infested building.... hmmmm. :) I like praying mantis. I already am dealing with hot muggy and buggy here! :D
