It's more "wrong" to purchase a snake illegally......

What he should realize is that both CA and AZ do not allow the barter/sale or trade of native reptiles. CA has a few non venomous exceptions but as a rule, don't do it bro.

He also never stated that he wishes to take them from the wild and place them in cages. If he did there is nothing wrong with that either. Rattlesnakes in both areas are often found on paved roads at night and commonly end up as road pizza unless someone is kind enough to avoid them or moves them off the road. To take one of these animals home and place it in a clean cage with regular food and water is no crime. If you are 13 y.o. with no venomous experience, that's a different story.

:Try to realize that it's wrong to take a wild snake and put it in a little cage. Try to find a breeder of rattlesnakes indiginous to your state/region. You'll find them. So pay a little. But do the right thing.

::I live near san bernardino, ca..near mountains/palm springs desert area, and near yuma, az..what snakes can I find? Please tell me where to look and what months are good to look, and what times of day..thanks
