Unless you can PROVE that this was removed from a TEXAS cave without the owners permission, there is NO evidence that there is any wrong doing.

Bad taste for selling them maybe, but with out contacting the seller and asking were they got them from, no sign of wrong doing.


These "formations" MAY have come from a quarry and where the "cave" was is now just air.

It may have come from a cave the seller owns, or that the seller has the owners permission to "mine".

It may even have been removed by a "digger" trying to get to more cave passage.

It may (most likely) also be from a shipment of "specimens" sent to the USoA for resale from a foreign country (not just some foreign state like NM,Ok,Ar,...etc.)

But who tells Craigslist this? I checked the box “prohibited” just to get the 
ball rolling but I did not call the seller. His only contact info is a phone 
number, upper left on the page.

On the list of prohibited items:
any good, service, or content that violates the law or legal rights of others

If you want to do anything else, you have to log in. Jacqui

Try to contact him, pretending you want to buy it, agreeing on any of his
requests, and get the most information from him and make it public.
