I have never had any dealings with the state herpetologist and am not second guessing his judgement, he is put in a very difficult spot deciding what can be and cannot. I can assure you I would never want to be in his shoes no matter what decision you make you are going to make someone mad. I just had hopes that the people that decide on permits were better informed
Oh, I didn't mean to make that statement in a way that it could be construed as me backing up Game and Fish. I would not want to be in Charlie's shoes either. I just meant that I was going to ask him to see if he knows anything about it. It sounds like someone may have let an alligator go, when they found out that they need a permit to own them.
I believe that I have spoken to that woman before, I was looking to set up a 125 gal for some rainbow trout. Too much work right now for a college
One thing that I seem to remember reading somewhere, is that it is up to the Head of the State Game and Fish dept., to determine which of the animal species are under what category, and he/she can change it at whim. It's really upsetting if that is true, while we as citizens can probably try and push for more lenient laws, the head of the the department can go the opposite way and knee jerk reaction our ownership of the animals that we care for into oblivion.

So I know I can import and export Ball Pythons but what about breeding? I have heard that in Albuquerque if you have more then 14 you need a permit. But if you have permits you cant breed. Is this true? And what about those of us in the surrounding area. What does NM say about breeding semi domestic reptiles?

Best thing to do Lucas is to get in touch with Game and Fish. They are in charge of all of that stuff. And I believe that the Herpetologist for NM Game and Fish actually lives near Albuquerque.

Lucas if you look at the links on page 3 of this thread it says nothing about needing a permit for any number of ball pythons but like Aaron said sometimes its best to talk to game and fish but I'd make them give you references as to where it says that in writing if it even does. If its not in writing it doesn't count.
