We failed to find any evidence of such traffic. Albeit if you want to buy fake animal parts, this isn't such a bad location. One shop had some lovely pieces of bone on display, and a quick inspection made the mould lines of the resin-cast they used obvious. To mimic the appearance of marrow they'd stuffed lots of fine twigs in the middle. I have to say the covetous look the shop-owner got when I asked about the price was amusing. I assume that a lot of Chinese urban consumers aren't familiar with basic bone anatomy.
