>>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.

On March 23, the Injurious Wildlife Lacey Act listing of the four species )burmese, n & s african rock python and yellow anaconda) will take effect.

http://www.fws.gov/verobeach/ConstrictorSnakeListing_QA.html

However, permits have been issued in the past for these species(retics and rock pythons), including certain venomous animals, by the MDFW. The potential owner has to make their case to DFW as to why they want to work with the animal in question. If the DFW thinks the reason is acceptable, permits have been issued.

Of course, the new federal law takes the four species mentioned in the Injurious Wildlife/Lacey Act listing off the table for good at the state level.
