Rockratt,
Since my focus is on research of the species, I'm not up to speed on issues regarding the pet trade. I will pass your request on to my son Ryan. Another person to contact in that regard is Dr. Rick Staub.

But as far as I know, in Calif., you are allowed to capture and maintain two Rubber Boas from that state. The exception, as you mentioned, are the Rubber Boas found in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mts. that are classified as Southern Rubber Boas and have been listed in a protected status since 1971. They shouldn't have been listed in the first place and should be removed from that listing---- but that's another story in itself.

As for what is allowed beyond maintaining two Rubber Boas originating form Calif., say Rubber Boas from other states, I am not aware.

Richard F. Hoyer
