If so, are there exceptions for rattlesnakes taken for roundups, skins or food and/or certain turtles taken for food?

If you eat 6 specimens you collect, you are no longer in possession of them. If you keep them alive to make more, you are a criminal.

The Code regarding possession of game/nongame wildlife was written under the assumption that people hunted for food or trophies (i.e. animal ends up dead)...hence the regs regarding "final processing" etc.

I'm formulating some ideas to see about getting applicable regs changed to actually make sense in today's herpetoculturally-advanced climate. If HSUS, PeTA, etc. can push hard for legislation, we should be able to as well!
