I admit that I am ignorant to the regulations in florida concerning easterns. I was previously under the impression that the common hobbyist could not obtain a permit to keep them. I thought it was only ones that were used for educational or research purposes.

George informed me that florida stopped regulating the ownership of easterns and that now all that is necessary is the federal permit. I'm assuming he was refering to the interstate transport permit to obtain them.

I'm trying to get clarity here and find out exactly what laws and regulations are in effect in florida.

So, just for clarity, a hobbyist is allowed to own a single eastern with the ownership permit that is reportedly easier to now obtain? Is this correct?

What if I was to obtain the permit, get a female, find someone with a male, and breed them? Under this law, would I be allowed to keep the offspring or only the 1?

I will make some calls on Monday and see what I can find out. I was thinking about getting a pair of Texas this coming spring/summer, but I would much rather get a nice redthroat or pair

Thanks for the feedback...
Jonathan
