The Jersey pines are extreamly protected (well, for a snake anyway)and you WILL be breaking the law if you try and take any out of the wild. Persoanly, I see no need for anyone to take snakes, especially threatend or endangered sp, out of the wild. If you want Jersey pines, find a breeder who has them. Their are quite a few people whom have animals from the area, which were collected or born from collected individuals before they were out lawed.

Leave the pines alone. They are rare enough as it is, theres no need to further deplete the population for a selfish reason such as wanting one for your collection. Their are so many good people who deal with Pituophis and are very pirticular about liniage that locateing a true New Jersey blood line wont be that difficult.

BTW, incase you are looking for other states to collect Northerns, be forwarned that Virginia(the next closest state with Northerns)is on their way to protecting them as well and hopefully, this trend will fallow in other states.

: Has anyone here ever done it? I'm in the Philadelphia area, 5 minutes from New jersey. I would like to go over and try to find some northerns this summer. i was wondering if anyone has anything to share about their experiences collecting them and maybe where would be a good place to look. Also, would just like to brag that I now have 10 pines in my collection. But no northerns yet. And Jersey northerns are the most beautiful ones. Thanks alot for any help.
