I'm not trying to be an ass but I've read through some of the posts on the http://www.regulations.gov site and most of what is there doesn't put us in the best light.

Please check your spelling. We don't want to sound like a bunch of kids (my apologies to the kids who can spell) or slacker adults living at home in their parent's basement. Pay attention to the proper usage of the following words: your, you're, there, their, they're, though, through, and thorough. Avoid excesses of passion, particularly anger, in your testimony. Keep it simple and factual. Don't shout at them. Show them the value of these animals to you as a pet owner.

Also please remember that this is an all or nothing issue. Don't say things like, "ban the big snakes but not my little boa" or "I understand why people don't like nasty Retics but boas are cool." This issue doesn't allow for compromise - it is winner take all. PETA, HSUS, and Fish & Wildlife want ALL large snakes banned period and they've worked hard to get it to this point. They will not give up easily so please don't say anything that adds fuel to their fire.

If you don't think this affects you if this law passes, it is a simple step to begin the process of outlawing Tegus, Monitors, and Iguanas which are also now a part of the Florida ecosystem so please get involved.
