":I think most consider "large" as anything over 6 feet in length....ie larger than a ball python. Although I guess they can get longer than that"

Many ratsnakes, pits, and other commonly kept species that can exceed 6 feet, but couldnt kill anything larger then a rat or small rabbit -

Why not a specific list of large constrictors - Boas Constrictors have never killed anyone - And they get big - ?

So, why not ban, if your going to, Specifically, Retics and Burms, both of which are the ones who have killed people in cative situations ? - Not leave it open to interpert - Go by the facts, and pick animals that have, in captive situations cased death, or extreme harm -

Personally, I dont like those restrictions of this sort at all, Because even when well written out, they are bias - Id fight the whole thing, or have verry specific requirments, that dont finacially incapacitate people -Like the huge amount it would take in the case of these animals in this case -Is that mirrored from local "Dangerous dog laws" - ?

Dogs are far more dangerous then any large snake statistically, and anyone can keep any type they wish -

Just my feeling on this issue -
