where are the scientists that are part of the everglades burm study when these laws are being passed? How can these uninformed people/politicians be allowed to make laws with such wrong information? I understand that the scientific/zoological/animal rights community don't think that the general public has the capability to keep exotics properly but to allow this obviously incorrect information to be accepted as truth is rediculous. You say you wonder if all snakes are going to be included, well of course they will over time. That is what the people pushing these laws want. Any time a species of snake is found in the wild even in very isolated circumstances, there will be a push to get that banned as well. I no longer live in the state of Fl but still contact my former state legislators but my voice means nothing to them when I lived there or now. What matters is the "Scientists" that are telling them what they want to hear. I am disgusted by this!!!! The genetic studies that have been done is either not being relayed to the politicians or they are ignoring it. If they are ignoring it, than those that are part of the study need to go public so that the laws that are passed are being done so with all information available. I understand that the initial release was caused by the pet trade (either by an irresposible dealer or by horrible caging with no evacuation plan for hurricanes) but those problems have been fixed with the current regulations. It is 100% obvious that the problem in the glades is not caused by a continual pet release epidemic but that is what the politicians are either being fed or purposefully lie and feed the public. Either way, those with the facts to come out and let the public know!!!!
