    Help me understand

    I am trying to understand the animals on the ban list.
    they saved 5 snakes from the ban list and yet now people are saying all 9 are banned still?

    And BCI are on the list? So now you cannot own a red tail boa? yet some people are saying you can still own them?
    i am sorry i am a little confused.

    Only 4 snakes are on that list currently but they are trying to add the other 5 still. The fight is not over.

    Here is the petition to help try to overturn this new rule or at least show that we have the amount of people in this industry than HSUS thinks.

    4 snakes (burmese python, yellow anaconda, north african rock python and south african rock python) were added to the injurious list of the Lacey Act. It bans the import and interstate transport of the animal. NOT ownership. You can still own the snake, you just can't take it across state lines.

    5 snakes that were previously on the "to be banned" list were not added to the final rule.
