Now farms in Tamil Nadu are also breeding exotic animals

Usually the exotic animals are smuggled into india through chennai airport from thailand, because it is closer than other metro cities
Now according to media reports, people in Tamil Nadu have set up farms for breeding the exotic animals.
They can then sell the animals locally or to buyers in other states in india
This increases their profit when they breed and sell animals, since the transportation cost is less
Also there is a lower risk that the animal will die during transportation or will be intercepted by the custom authorities
Many of these exotic animals are sold for Rs 1-5 lakh each.
