For up to two specimens, a cage or enclosure having a perimeter equal to the length of the longest specimen, the width of the cage shall not be less than 20 percent of the length of the longest specimen. The width of the enclosure shall not be required to exceed 3 feet. For each additional specimen, increase perimeter by 10 percent.”
These are pretty reasonable and a vast majority of us already (unknowingly) meet or exceed these guidelines.
Sect 935.13,14 - Director of Agriculture can revoke permits for violations and maintain a database of permit holders/animals
Sect 935.15 - Keeper must maintain records for EACH animal including: scientific/common name, name/address of person obtained from, date acquired, date of birth if the snake was produced by you, name/address of who you sold animal to, date of death/escape if applicable, microchip ID number (microchips do NOT apply to snakes)
Sect 935.16 - Must notify law enforcement and Dept of Agriculture if animal escapes.
Animal can be killed if it is a danger to public and owner is responsible for any resulting costs
Sect 935.17 - More care standards for animals on Dangerous Wild Animals list and guidelines for “experience exam” for Dangerous Wild Animals and/or Venomous Snakes
Sect 935.18 - All non-venomous animals from Restricted Snakes list are OK to sell at shows/auctions
There is a portion of this section that requires “warning signs” on doors/properties/cars containing any of the restricted animals, but it is not clear whether that applies to the Restricted Snakes or not.
Sect 935.19 - Inspections are allowed ONLY with permission from owner. Without permission, inspectors/law-enforcement must obtain a warrant.
Sect 935.20 - Investigations can only take place if Director of Agriculture has reason to believe the law is violated (still requires warrant). If violations are found, animal can be confiscated and charges filed. There is a process to challenge these findings.
