Lance,
I understand your concern about TPWD and our freedom to collect reptiles and amphibians. Here, quoted for your information, is a portion of the Parks and Wildlife Code under Title 2, Chapter 12 called, "Powers and Duties Concerning Wildlife":

12.104. Right to Search and Inspect

(a) A game warden or other peace officer commissioned by the department may search a game bag, vehicle, vessel, or other receptacle if the game warden or peace officer has a reasonable, articulable suspicion that the game bag, vehicle, vessel, or receptacle contains a wildlife resource that has been unlawfully killed or taken.

(b) A game warden or other peace officer commissioned by the department may inspect a wildlife resource or a part or product of a wildlife resource that is discovered during a search under Subsection (a) of this section.

(c) In this section "wildlife resource" means an animal, bird, reptile, amphibian, fish, or other aquatic life the taking or possession of which is regulated in any manner by this code.
