quote "... and all this is probably why the law is not being enforced (meaning charges filed and cases prosecuted). Having said all that, with the way new federal and state laws are coming down hard on herptile enthusiasts, I still wouldn't want to take the chance. "endquote

As a side point to consider, if we all become so paranoid that we stop all above ground legal activities then it looks bad for us.. since the opposition can then point to the "illegal underground trade" or since it isn't viewable above ground, it is hard to make an argument about loss of revenue to home businesses or "job creation"...
Most of the states have prohibitions to the import of baby turtles into the state unless they meet some regulation (for example Pennsylvania has an old law on the books that requires any turtle or tortoise being brought into the state to have tested seven consecutive times for salmonella and all of the tests have to have been negative and signed off on by the state of origin's chief veternarian..NJ simply prohibits the sale of tortoises in the state...
