Well without making it too complex, a number of reptiles were deemed "injurious" by US Fish and Wildlife. Injurious is just their way of saying the animals are potentially harmful to humans and the environment. As a way to counteract the popularity of the listed animals they were added to a federal wildlife act that actually was never intended to be applicable. So now its a felony (LMFAO) to transport the Lacey act animals across state lines.
I'm sure someone has surplus Burms in TN. I know a lot of breeders scaled down their ops because they wouldnt be able to liquidate the offspring.
Good Luck
