    How are they even going to know you have any if you have had them for years prior to this legislation? I think it's a ridiculous law, but what are they gonna do take a census?

    I'd like to get a better understanding of what was passed. They banned all reptiles that are deemed not domesticated in WV?

    They use a grandfather type clause in the past here in PA.

    Well that just blows if they do that here...I saw this was an older thread but that law has recently come up again here in the last couple weeks. I would think they would have more important things to worry about..

    Yeah, like preventing another incident like the Freedom Industries chemical spill. Does anyone know what species will be included? To me, it sounds like any species that can possibly be classified as 'exotic' will be included. Basically, anything other than cats and dogs is potentially affected. I hope someone can tell me I'm wrong.
