Hello. While New Jersey does have strict laws we're in far better shape than other states. Where or why do you think your not permitted to have Eastern Chain Kings in New Jersey? You most certainly are! There are no laws in NJ banning you from keeping a Chain King. We do have the Corn snake law and Turtle ban from sale but there are no laws regarding Eastern Chain Kings. Obviously you can't take them from the wild but the Chain King is sold throughout NJ pet stores and can be legally permitted through the Division of F & W's permit dept. As far as the rear fanged, What about the Hognose? No Ban on them. NJ school have their good and bad points just like any other school system but I must admit, the proper way to keep, treat, house, etc., exotics is not a priority. We as parents need to instill this in our children. Leave the schools to teach reading, writing, math, etc., and if possible, have an after school club focusing on Reptiles and Amphibians. The society was formed to help in the area of educating the general public in the keeping of R&A's and we'll continue to do so. besides, 10 dollars to permit as many herps as you have is no big deal. It's cheeper than 10 per animal and it the law.
Take care and thank you foe sharing your views with us.
: how man nj herp nuts are as angry as i am with nj's herp laws?
: a lil ' over board wouldnt you say ...no normal corns?...no chain kings?....no axolotls?
: no harmless rear fanged?....parrot snakes!? i mean i have been bit by these things....no worse than a ground bee...should we now go and outlaw beekeepers and exterminate all hornets?!
: if jersey public schools are so great why dont they teach responsible behavior to the kids so they dont abuse exotics when they are old enough to own em' ...now i have to limit my animals because some jerk cant handle a reptile .......
