He already stated in his post that you have to be 21 and have a permit, herp. Gilbert
:Hi, :My name is Michael Brown. I am 14 and have kept herps for 8 years already. I live in Illinois where you need to be 21 and have a permit to keep venomous herps. I was wondering if you think, in 7 more years, that I will have enough experience to keep crotalids. I have worked with many crotalids in the field in south Florida and know alot about handling with tongs, hooks, ect. I may sound like I'm still a kid but I have extensive knowledge over handling hots. Please give me your imput.
