Hello All,

Good news for a change...

Interested Massachusetts stakeholders should plan on attending this hearing. This hearing is one of the last steps toward legalizing the keeping of Emerald tree boas, Green tree pythons, All Chameleon species and the Spiny-tailed monitor lizard (Ackie)in Massachusetts. The last step is the governor signing off on the new changes and then they become law. After that, these animals may be freely possessed, traded, bought and sold by both hobbyists and pet shops.

This is verbatim from the Ma. Division of Fisheries & Wildlife Newsletter, "MassWildlife News."

This is a public hearing on our regulation change issues regarding Green tree pythons, Emerald tree boas, Chameleons and Spiny-tailed monitor lizards.

I expect at least 100 reptile people showing up at this hearing in support of these changes. If all goes well, and it should, the Governor will sign it into law shortly thereafter.

"September 24 – Fisheries and Wildlife Board Meeting and Public Hearing, Dalton – The Fisheries & Wildlife Board will meet on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 1:00PM at the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife Western District Office located on 88 Old Windsor Road, Dalton. A Public Hearing will be held at the same location at 3:00PM to establish and amend rules and regulations relative to the Artificial Propagation of Birds, Mammals, Reptiles, and Amphibians; the Exemption List; and the List of Domestic Animals. Call (508) 389-6300 for more information."

Please, if you are planning to attend the hearing DO NOT BRING ANY LIVE ANIMALS TO THE HEARING.
