    Default Anybody know their local exotic species permit laws?

    I think it'd be nice if we can get a list going on here. For example, oregon can no longer get chinese hamsters. We also can't keep a lot of different kinds of newts and salamanders. I know it was a total PITA for me to find some of these, so it might be useful to get a list going on here, since I can't find one anywhere else!
    I'll keep the text smaller for now so we don't have too many stretched pages, but I'll put it in normal font size once we add them in.

    D: I know, california has some of the odd ones. Unfortunately some major cities may also have some particular laws, but I don't think I really have the time to find all of those, ahaha. But I know, for example, that even slightly venomous snakes (such as a hognose) are illegal in Indiana. This might become a problem if somebody needs to transport that species through this state. The chances of you running into problems will be extremely slim, honestly, but if you need to know before the crap starts falling down, hopefully we can get enough of these up that they'll help. I've found a couple websites that have this sort of information on it, but the links seem to die off quite often.

    This is all I found on Kansas
    We can basically have anything, except things I couldn't see people wanting to keep in their Kansas yard anyway

    Apparently you need a permit to keep a chinchilla if I read this right:

    I used to keep Chinchillas for many years here in California! Great pets.

    We can have chinchillas, and as of 2009 ferrets are no longer banned. I plan on doing more research of course, but I know for sure, chinchillas are NOT banned.

    Illinois is not as easy as posting a website, besides I would not go by another persons website and suggest links to the state, county, and city agencies that have jurisdiction. These laws do change, and those ordnances and laws are updated.

    Cities will have their ordances you should know, such as no Constrictors in Galesburg, IL or Quincy, IL requires a permit for all snakes over 6ft in length.

    In Illinois the state laws are enforced by Illinois Dept of Natural Resources since they have their own police force, the Conservation Police (CPO's). Illinois does not allow native mammals to be kept, so no skunks. Illinois does not allow "poisonous reptiles" so no venomous snakes and no crocodilians over 6 ft in length. The Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources want you to hold a permit from them when owning crocodilians. So owning an alligator in IL requires you have have an Illinois Threatened and Endangered Species Possession Permit. If you intend to breed a species that requires permit, then you must have a propagation permit. Lets also not for get your states Threatened and Endangered Species permit. Spotted Turtles and Western Hognose Snakes require possession permits. I saw them for sale at Tinley Park and notified the seller. Hopfully they did not sell any, because that is a whole another issue. The Department of Agriculture also has regulations, these apply to those who hold their permits, such as no sakes for sale in pet shops over 6 ft in length.

    This is why if you love herps, join you local herpetological society or at least know of a local group. We spend a lot of time working on protecting the rights of pet ownership. If you scroll through some post you will fond a copy and paste job on an article that is a case I worked on in my hometown of Pekin: http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/foru...ad.php?t=22314

    NARBC has a list of Texas laws for their Arlington show. See http://www.narbc.com/htm2006/dfw_index.htm.

    Default State of Alaska

    The "clean list" is the State of Alaska's list of allowed animals as pets. Instead of banning individual species, it banned everything except what is allowed.

    State of Alaska - Clean List Regulations

    In some ways it's good, in other ways not-so-good. I understand the intent, and while it keeps me from keeping some animals I might be interested in keeping, I do understand their point. Many small animals could at the very least spread disease to native wild animal populations if set loose or escaped, and for that reason alone many species will never be added to the clean list. I understand that. Yeah, it's a bummer that I'll never be able to have a sugar glider up here, but I understand. A lot of people up here are too selfish to understand (or perhaps care about) the reasoning behind the ruling.

    Also, as was mentioned before, different municipalities and communities may have other more restrictive laws. Such as, in Anchorage it is illegal to keep rats, though white/albino rats are on the "Clean List".
