The Ball Python nation is the largest there is in the snake market and probably in the reptile industry all together....but the only ones interested in overturning the ruling are the BP breeders that have something on the list.
There are thousands of BP breeders in the US and if they all came together and donated the price of a pastel female ($100.00) then you would have enough to fight....but it is not going to happen until they see a list from the Gov't listing them as an invasive.


Most of what you said makes sense and I agree. I wish to simply put one point in one paragrah in perspective. I put it above for clarity.

The ultimate cost of suing the federal government over this issue is in the neighborhood of $5,000,000 and could be as high as twice that. {this data comes from a friend who is a federal attorney}.

I doubt you will find 50,000 ball python breeders to donate $100ea. If you correct your thought to include ball python owners, then you have a fighting chance.

Otherwise, nicely put! The thought about them not joining the battle until BP's are attacked is spot on. Unfortunately.
