USFWS essentially had to lie and cheat to get Burms, Rocks, and Yellows listed as "injurious" under the Lacey Act; By listing only the 4 species (instead of all 9 at once), they circumvented due process and the review process required by Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for major rulemakings that would have an economic impact of $100 million or greater. That was how they did it, and they will be shooting for the rest:

"Ashe said the Service will continue to consider listing as injurious the five other species of nonnative snakes that the agency also proposed in 2010 – the reticulated python, boa constrictor, DeSchauensee’s anaconda, green anaconda and Beni anaconda."

It was the classic divide and conquer strategy used by FWS and DOI to attain what was clearly a pre determined rule. Folks, this is your federal govt. at work.
