It is true that you can not legally collect rubber boas in Washington State for herpetocultural purposes. It is however not true, as the law is worded, that you cannot keep rubber boas in Washington State. If your boas are acquired out of state, and you can prove that, you should technically be okay. That being said though, it can be difficult to prove that the particular boas in your possession are from out of state. Even if you can prove it, please don't go around advertising (shows, internet, etc.) that you have Rubber boas. Any DFW agent that sees or hears the words "rubber boas" in Washington is likely to see that as a huge red flag, and is also likely not to know that not all rubber boas are illegal in the state. My final bit of advice I would like to leave you with is to just avoid the rubber boas entirely as far as keeping in captivity goes. Get into sand boas and rosys, they aren't the same, but they are totally legal in Washington and probably always will be.
