:Hi,
: I was referred to this thread from Fauna classifieds. If you check their site out at the BOI you'll find some more info on what happened. As for the beardeds and the aqautic liscence....what kind of moron would give a citation for not having the said liscence to someone for selling a desert species?!?!? From what I've read at Fuana, most of the officers involved in the raid didn't have a clue as to what they were doing and enforcing!! Let's learn the laws first, then we can start enforcing them!!

Because that is the jurisdiction that the state of illinois placed bearde dragons under. The fact that they are not aquatic
really isn't an issue. Like I said on the BOI would it make you feel better if you were cited for not having a desert dwelling lizard permit.

I agree, lets learn the laws, but that goes not only for the law enforcement people but the vendors at the show as well. If you want to sell an animal anywhere you should be responsible enough to learn what permits you need to do so legaly. If that means you find out that you need an aquaculture permit to sell beardies then you better damn sure get one. If everyobody followed the law raids like this would not be neccessary. The problem, I will admit, is how do you go about finding out exactly what the laws are and what permits you need.

::From what I heard you need to have an aquatic dealers license (or something like that) to sell beardeds in Illinois and several of the people at the swap did not have them.
