: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.

Well depending on when you called them, yeah it may have taken a while. Recently I have found them very helpful when it comes to permit ammendments(aside from granting them with no proof of handler experience). I believe Your theory above is correct, if you apply it to crocodilians in NY State, but not so for the Terrepene species. IT's designed to give protection to the Eastern box turtle in NY in lieu of the fact that the data on populations is sketchy at best and not sufficient to list them as Threatened(remember SC has no protection).....it's illegal to collect them, but ok for a Long Island developer to bulldoze them over!!!!

If this PI$$ES you off as it does me, write a letter to the Endangered Species unit and give them your 2 cents worth! I strongly encourage it!
