In Reply to: Future Texan needs herp law summary posted by Maxx MacLeod on January 06, 2002 at 04:34:47:
In a nut shell, most herps are legal in Texas. You need an education permit to keep wc endangered or protected. Call Tina Turner (yes, that's her real name) at the dept of wildlife in Austin. She'll be more than happy to get a copy of the laws out to you :)
: Hello, everyone! My fiance and I just purchased some property in Austin, Texas. We plan to move from Minnesota to your more herp friendly climate next August...along with my huge collection of exotic aquatic turtles. I have been breeding some of these species. Is there anyone that can give me a brief summary of Texas herp law and who can give me a general idea of what local (city) laws are like? Minnesota city codes are out of hand and I'm hoping that Texas is better in this regard. Thanks!
