If you are not aware there is a strong push by anti-pet groups and uneducated legislators to restrict our abilities to keep and work with these amazing creatures. There are crazy things on the horizon like a proposed shipping ban of all animals in New York, an outright ban of Tegu ownership in South Carolina where they cannot possibly survive in the wild, a Salamander ban pending in Alaska and another proposed ban of Live Animal Shows in Illinois just to name a few.
We proudly support the United States Association of Reptile Keepers and implore all you to do the same. While one of these current pieces of legislation may not affect you once it starts, it rarely stops. There is only one organization out there fighting for our rights and injecting actual science into the argument and that is USARK. Memberships start at $40 and donations are accepted to. Please consider joining the cause by clicking the link below. The very future of keeping these awesome animals in a very real way hangs in the balance!
