This is a common question in FL.

The short version is that, yes, it has to do with the definition of "possession". If you get your experience at someone else's facility, THEY "possess" the animals. As long as you don't take them home, or transport them without a licensed person in the vehicle, you're OK. I can't guarantee that some day, some officer or prosecutor, under pressure from some politician might see it differently, but in 12 years of keeping, including 2000 hours at a refuge before I got my permit, I've never heard anyone with any relevant authority take a stricter view.
