      Invasive species in Europe. In the Netherlands a wild population was established but most of these have been caught and placed in zoos.

      Thanks Chlidonias.

      same in Asia! They are common in the pet trade and have been spread all over the place. They are now common at the Dusit Zoo (in Bangkok) and all over Shanghai. I'm not sure if they are introduced in Chiang Mai or not, because they are native to northern Thailand (but perhaps not to Chiang Mai itself).
