>>"You CANNOT use this document for certain reptiles such as reticulated pythons, Rock pythons, Anacondas, venomous animals or crocodilians. Keep in mind that recent federal laws will soon ban burmese pythons, both species of Rock pythons and the Yellow anaconda."

>>To clarify, the Lacey Act listing will not ban ownership or intrastate sales, only the import/export and interstate transportation without a permit. Right?

>>I think what he was referring to is that Massachusetts has certain animals that are completely banned and those that are banned unless you obtain a permit to keep them. Those particular species of snakes are completely banned in Ma. and have been for quite some time now.

The latest Injurious Wildlife listing under the Lacey Act involving the two species of rock python, burmese and yellow anaconda will mean that no new importations into any state will occur of these species. Only those animals currently residing in each individual state can be maintained, purchased and sold WITHIN EACH RESPECTIVE STATE. No interstate sales, no import or export. It does not ban possession. States (when the law goes into effect) will not have authority to issue new permits for any of these four species. That authority will rest with the federal government.
