In Reply to: The NY Bill limits it to specific species but ..... posted by Matt Harris on September 12, 2002 at 08:51:38:

If that's what it'll take to keep the legislation at bay, and keep certain animals out of certain peoples hands, then it sounds like a bargain to me.


:most laws use 8 or 10 feet as the limit.

:
:As for the liability policy, well, our herp society carries a $1 million dollar policy and it runs about $500 a year. If anyone can't afford this to keep their animals with an assurance that if something escapes or hurts someone, then I start to question if they can afford to provide the necessary proper care period, with caging, food, medications, heating......it easily adds up to a couple thousand bucks a year.
