    check the colleges and universities near you for a biologist teaching....any biologist familiar with reptiles should be able to key it out

    depends............call anonymously, explain the situation.........maybe you will find someone who will do it and not turn yah in so long as it doesnt key out to a SPECIFICALLY outlawed SPECIES......never seen a law written that says you cant have something cause it looks like something thats protected

    I'd also check local zoos for a qualified herpetologist. I have a buddy here who might be able to help. Let me email him and see if he can offer any advice.

    That's terrible. Poor Lucy. I guess that means we might need the...

    BTW....what was illegal about bringing her into the state? Can't transport snakes across state lines without permission?

    I believe the argument is that the snake is supposedly illegal to keep in the state and yet he brought it in anyways. Just a guess.

    I can empathize as technically I am illegal with one of my snakes. GA does not allow for any herp native to GA to be kept as a pet regardless of breeding or morphology. And my 16 year old corn which is albino (so obviously CB) and was purchased in CO when I lived there falls under the category of "native herp"

    Its odd that the law wouldn't offer a variance for people who lived in and acquired snakes in another state where it was legal. Its kinda like forcing a parent to give up a child just because they moved to a new state. (Not that I'm saying snakes and kids are on the same level. Well, you know what I mean.) There should be some recognition of the fact that that laws vary by state and people move.

    This might sounds goofy but it's just an idea- suppose you transported the snake to somewhere (and obviously in the care of someone who's "good for it") that it IS legal, then try to get that permit that way, then legaly re-import the thing- worst case, the snake gets to stay with a snake-person and doesn't get conficated so long as it's out-of-state and in a "legal" place at the time (in case the permit gets denied)

    And IF the permit works out, you're golden.

    Just a thought , hope it works out well no matter what man
