Actually there have been cases of snakes reproducing asexually, it's not common but there was a case this year with a burmese python reproducing with out a male to help. How ever promoting the breaking of herp laws is the wrong way to do things, and rather irresponsible. The laws may be unjust (in this case I don't feel they are) but you don't change them by breaking them. Also if a species makes it's over on it's own, bully for them, it wasn't introduced by man. Look at the problems Australia is having with all the species introduced by man. It's well past time to start being responible about the ecosystem, and saying "one snake won't hurt" doesn't help, if everyone had one snake escape the place would be overrun. Look at florida where they have non native species out in the wild.
