Title   Injurious Wildlife Species; Review of Information Concerning Constrictor Snakes from Python, Boa, and Eunectes genera
Type   Nonrulemaking
Summary   We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service or We), are reviewing available biological and economic information on constrictor snakes in the Python, Boa and Eunectes genera for possible addition to the list of injurious wildlife under the Lacey Act. An injurious wildlife listing would prohibit the importation into, or transportation between, States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, or any territory or possession of the United States by any means, without a permit. Permits may be issued for scientific, medical, educational, or zoological purposes.
RIN   1018-AV68

 

 Hopefully everyone read the summary above for the actions that would be taken if the NOI results in the determination of the listing of species of Boas, Pythons, and Anacondas as Injurious Wildlife species.

As you see below the docket is closed, here is what you find if you click on the link:

I feel of course we always could have done a better job, but with the amount of time we had we did the best job we could. I have no idea if content or numbers play a role in the determination of these things. This means if they got 100,000 letters for this listing that make no sense, and 2000 letters against this listing that made sense, does the content or the numbers influence the decision making process?

How long until we get any kind of feedback? I don't know this answer either. Is it a required allotment of time that has to be followed? I will try and work on finding that out, so at least we have some sort of idea about when we will get some feedback.

At this point the only thing we can do is to keep working on our projects and hope for a great result.

So, back to work we go! I wanted to put up a pic of another "quad" snake!

I can't wait to watch these guys grow up!
