Sorry Jeff ... thought you were joking! ;o) It basically means you cannot own one without a permit from Fish & Wildlife. You cannot sell one to someone else unless they also possess a permit.
I've never actually tried to get a permit - so I don't know how difficult it is. I know of someone getting one to rescue a beaten, starved burm or for those that run zoos... Maybe someone else has more information.
I am under the understanding that it is up to a $50,000 fine and/or jail time if caught with an illegal animal. Correct me if I'm wrong!!
