What sorts of horn have been or are being carved? Which countries do they come from. Are some illegal to be using/selling?

Does anyone have any experiences to share from having used horn for netsuke?

Water buffalo horn has a high carvability factor. I have only carved buffalo horn from Peru, and have no idea about the legality of transporting to the states. I don't see why it would be a problem since they are not endangered.
