That sucks!!! I know you probably can't discuss it, but some more info would be helpful - right now it sounds like anyone who keeps/breeds/sells/trades native snakes of any kind has to worry... Let us know what happens with you and your snakes!

:Today the USFWS and an armed conservation officer spent the afternoon going through my snake room. They are cracking down on ANYONE selling/trading non game species. Bottom line Is I will be sited I suspect and out of the garter bussiness.I have all of 30 snakes

:Even keeping them will require significant documentation. So my advice is lay low and work to change the laws they are bad.

:
:Welcome to free America and Say Goodbye to the Garter Snake Guys. The threatened to confiscate my computer because I wouldnt give them sources of places I got the snakes....No comment on my actions just be carefull out there the little guys are geting hammered a big guy can fisght back with lawyers .A guy with thirtey snakes and an Armed officer during the lunch holiday with the in laws was a bit much.
