I understand your points, but in my case catching local wild reptiles and amphibians has been a part of me for about 50 years. It's just what I do every year from spring to fall.I actually moved to where I am now specifically to find eastern hog nosed snakes with the insane idea of trying to protect them. They are concidered by most in this area to be poisonous and therefore feared and killed on site.

I don't keep anything that I can't get to eat within two weeks and I don't keep what I catch late in the fall for fear they won't survive the winter here. In Michigan hibernation is a factor:e.

Also,if they aren't being hunted by the thousands for resale, a few gone missing now and then won't hurt the population. Trust me, that's the last thing I want to see happen.

The Gray I have now is doing quite well. He's fat and sassy. Gets to eat on a regular basis (a couple crickets every other night)and I get the priveledge of listening to his song now and then.

And as a side note, I do catch leagally. A fishing liscense is required to catch frogs and turtles, and I fish, and eat what I catch every year.
