Reptile shows are not really illegal in TN. The reason you never see them here is because we can't get anyone to come to them. Because of the way the current laws are written in TN, you cannot import or transport any reptile into this state without permits. These are two seperate permits. This means that a permit would have to be purchased for every reptile that was brought into the state to sell as well as a seperate permit for each animal that is transported in the state. Plus, because TWRA does not get into sub-species, a permit for every kingsnake and cornsnake/ratsnake sold would be required. Too much hassle and no one could really make a profit after all of the permits were purchased. Also, if you are looking for PDFs, I saw some beauties at Jacobi Herpetoculture in Nashville last week.
