I received my permit in 2002 and then the requirements werent as strict concerning labeling, inventory, and critical incident report and plan. The requirements were basically the same. At that time I was getting my experience and "hours" helping 2 locals who already had their Hot permits. I was originally from Georgia where keeping native Hots is legal...Its actually illegal to keep native colubrids...thats another discussion. But my prior experience didnt really go towards the "1000 hours" experience but did help in gaining the trust of the 2 guys in letting me assist in everyday activities surrounding keeping hots. Changing bedding, removing the snakes from cages to do so, and any other activities in and around venomous species was considered experience. But then what it boiled down to was 2 letters of reccomendation from 2 current permitted venomous license holders whom I got my "hours" under. The language in the requirements can be confusing and cloudy. Id reccomend calling FWC and getting in touch with permitting department. They will be more than happy to answer any questions. I can say that After several years of not keeping Hots I renewed this past year. I previously having a license helped, but the new requirements were suprising, but IMO necessary and great for the hobbyist in the longrun. Hope I could be of help.
