In Reply to: permit to go herping in south florida posted by julio on January 06, 2002 at 21:20:00:
:You do not need a permit to go "herpng" in south Florida. There are certain species that are protected such as Indigo snakes and Gopher tortoises as well as some others. There are also rules regarding collecting in state parks and such which you need to be aware of(I am unfamiliar with them as I do almost no collecting of native species, but I am vaguely familiar with the rules.) You only need a permit for selling animals or public display, or for keeping restricted species(venomous,crocodillians etc.) or for keeping protected species such as the ones I mentioned previously (they usually don't allow us peasants to have those permits as protected wildlife is a good first step for the state to eliminate the concept of private property so I wouldn't be worried about those anyway.) Some people in our herp society think that you should obtain the sales permit whether or not you intend to sell your animals. I respectfully disagree with this idea. If you do not intend to sell animals why should you give the state more information on your private life than they need? Cuba insisted that every body register their guns, and when Castro took over, he knew right where to go to confiscate them all. Why should we afford the state such a luxury when they decide to try and take our pets from us the way Cuba took guns from their people?
