Siamese crocodile.

Siamese crocoliles are officially protected, yet law enforcement is so lax that illegal trading persists.
Poachers capture the theatened crocs and launder them into markets through legal but unregulated farms. There, the animals are bred with other stock and sold for meat and skins.
Nearly eradicated from their original habitats, Siamese crocodiles are commonly found as bags, belts, and other accessories. How can law enforcement be improved to stop poachers?
