Another thought just popped into mind as well. One of TWRA's many pathetic problems is that they do not recognize sub-species. Because eastern kingsnakes are found in TN, they require proof of purchase for any kingsnake you own, even California kings that in know way could have been taken from TN's wild population. Since reptiles are native to this state, I wonder how the DOA and TWRA would split authority. Who would be in charge of setting up regulations for collecting herps from the wild? I know the bill is listed as "exotic animals", but as I said, since TWRA does not recognize subspecies, there could be a clash. TN has eastern hognose snakes, so what would the rules be for owning Madagascar giant hognose snakes? Just an interesting thought that I had. I think the DOA would have to change alot of the current rules and regs in order to make their job much less of a hassel and probably there best bet would be to exclude TWRA in any way from having any authority over any reptiles native or otherwise.
