Laura,
How is it that you're ending up in Georgia?
It's one of the most backward states in regards to herpetological legislation.
If you're dead set on going there; hopefully you can help to enact some changes.
They definitely need some forward-thinking people like you.

Best of luck....

Well, long story short, I can't move the country boy here, so the city girl is going there LOL I have heard about some of the laws and native species, but don't really know much more. Can you enlighten me??
I will be in contact with Brian Potter if some stuff needs to be changed. I also contacted BW Smith about joining a herp society out there.

I agree Mike, I too live in Ga. The herp laws need to be revamped badly.

Oh yeah, love those herps Laura. If it were warmer you may have seen a few more interesting species. But soon enough

Well.. The Laws go something like this... You can't catch/harass/keep/anything any native fauna/reptiles... Something along those lines. It sucks.

It is more restrictive but a lot of people think reptiles are food or kill reptiles just for sport in this state. Get a wildlife rehibilitator licence and work with the DNR and it would make it easier.

The biggest problem is finding a good herp vet that won't turn you in.

Oh yeah, when he asked me to go for a creek walk, I ASSumed it meant walking along the creek, not in it. Thank God he missed the photo op of my head over heels, summer salt!

I tried to step over a log, realized that my legs were too short and decided to step on it to cross over it, thinking to myself "hey I can concure this obstacle" yes! Jane of the jungle has nothin on me, but I was wrong.

When I perched my left foot atop the log, it gave out, thank god I can think in mid air! I saw my face heading straight for the ground and flipped myself to land squarely on my back!

I am now laughing and bleeding form my shin, left abdomen, left wrist and left elbow! I here this "honey, are you ok"???? As I'm lying there injured, I think to myself, Oh yeah dear, don't come over to check on my wounds, I'm just peachy!!!!

Keeping my dignity in tact, I got up and continued on our adventure.

I will save the details of nearly being sucked under by the current of the so called deep spots of the water.

And I can't wait to do this again!!!!
