:Yes, and to confuse the issue, Box turtles are small game with NO OPEN SEASON!!! Marvelous way of protecting a species without the luxury of it being classified as endangered or threatened.


I think (and others agree) that this is the way the NYSDEC deals with the fact that the Eastern Box which is indemic and used to be threatened is too much like other US Boxes to train their people to tell them apart. But this is the agency that, when I applied for a permit for an eastern Indigo snake, sent me the application of venomous. AND when I called to have them send me ,perhaps, the endangered permit to possess took a good five minutes on hold to confirm that I was right, that was the one I needed.
