I had previously seen that Kingsnake has a "law" section, so I followed a couple of links there, to find this:
http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/pdf/xotic_permreq.pdf

As stupid as this is, it appears New Jersey thinks damned near every snake and reptile in the world is "exotic", including rat snakes, king snakes, geckos, green snakes and even ring necked snakes. All of the above would require a permit, in New Jersey, according to what I read in this document. Interestingly, no Indigos are on the list, but I'd be very surprised if the bureaucratic idiocy that created this list allowed other species to escape their ignorance.

It would seem to me that if someone had Federal permits, and the snake was harmless and native to the US, and non-native to the state in question, then State authorities would have no interest.

But, I'm not a bureaucrat, so I really don't have the mental capacity to understand their world.

Chris
