That is because there are NO large constrictor snakes in WV anywhere. No where in our state do we have a sustainable climate for them. Any snake not native to the area would die immediately here. I've seen it go from 95 degrees to 33 degrees within 12 hours here in the E Panhandle. Which would mean instant death for and "invasive" species of larger constrictor. These animals are localized to areas like Florida, etc. Because of constant warm climate. Have you ever turned all heating off to your snakes of ANY species here in WV? HELL NO they would instantly either DIE or get insanely sick probably with a R.I which lets face it can mean death a lot of times anyway. All these laws about reptile ownership are all based on IRRESPONSIBLE owners actions. Not the actions of responsible parties who care about their animals.
