    It's a lot of fun. I am from AZ and caught many a gopher when I lived there. I was up in Prescott and ran in to them at least twice a week during the warm seasons. Look in to a permit if you want to catch, keep, and breed.

    the right side of F & G regs.
    I am from AZ. An inexpensive permit (at least used to be inexpensive) will see you catching and establishing a breeding colony in short order. They do have some odd rules about keeping offspring, but shouldn't be a problem bid you are selling.

    Also, I didn't mean Joe from gopheryourpet, I meant Joe, the founder of the forks morph. That's where I got mine.

    Yeah If I ever went into this I would definitely check in and make all of the proper preparations to do things legally. I'm pretty sure gophers are still legal to collect in state under a certain limit, however, I'm still on the side of keeping captive bred only snakes just because I don't want to risk potentially bringing in diseases into my collection.
    Snakes:
    0.1 Cinnamon Ball Python -Beyoncé-
    0.1 Boa Constrictor Longicauda -Lana-
    0.1 Arizona Rosy Boa -Cocoa Bean-
    1.0 Sonoran Gopher Snake -Jason-
    Four-Legged Sausages:
    0.0.1 Indonesian Blue Tongued Skink -Charli-
