If you have a valid PA state fishing license, you can keep two of each species - ie. 2 black rats, 2 painted turtles, etc. But if you have a male and a female of a species, hope they don't breed, because you can't keep the babies, and as you noted, you can't sell them... The laws don't say anything about trading or releasing captive bred native species, though, as far as I know.

There is a legal loophole (I think) that may allow petstores to sell "native" species - if they keep the documentation from their wholesaler/dealer that the animal came from another state that allows collecting, or was captive bred. (This would only apply to species that have ranges that extend outside of the PA state borders, of course.) In other words, your black rat may have been captive bred, or collected, in South Carolina. If the store has documentation to prove that, they may be ok. I don't know if the Game Commission is totally ok with that though, I guess that loophole could be abused.

Somewhere I have a link to the current PA state herp laws, if I find it I'll post it for you to check out.

: Can you keep 2 of each species (like 2 black rats, 2 box turtles, 2 painted turtles, ect - ), as Ive recently heard from several people, or 2 animals (1 black rat, 1 painted turtle) in general (and no more) at any time?

: I know you can not sell wild caught native animals, even though I bought my black rat snake at that fish place -

: I was told by a friend that with a fishing lisance, you could keep only 2 animals. I have a black ratsnake, and an eastern painted turtle.

: Ive told people that this was the case - am I incorrect?

: Can I keep more native species?

: Thanx alot, in advance,
