In Reply to: Crotalus Native to Pennsylvania posted by reptile world on February 11, 2003 at 08:49:51:
The only Crotalus sp found in the state are horridus. The Mass is Sisturis and is very protected. As peopel have mentioned, you cant sell timbers in PA and I belive it is very difficult to get a permit to collect one. If hes takeing em off his land and selling em, report his arse!!!!!
Good luck and keep us informed,
:Some guy came into the shop I work in, and was asking if anyone wanted baby rattlers. I started talking to him and he said that he collects them on his property in Pennsylvania.
:Now, if I recall, there is a species of ratler in PA that is extreamly endagered. I told him this, and his reponse was, "So".
:Anyway, is there another species located in PA that is not endangered? How would I tell the difference between the two?
:Either way, I dont like the fact that he is gatering wild rattlers and selling them to people who may nave little to no experiance with reptiles. It would be even worse though if the snake was endangered.
:Please let me know what information you can. Pictures would be helpfull. Thanks.
