The point I was trying to make was that unless you move you will never be able to have more than 2 hot snakes. You did not leave me with the impression that you were familiar with your towns bylaws. When I quoted them you asked me to explain them to you. I did not find that to be very comfortating. If you are unable to understand your town's bylaws how will you be able to educate yourself enough to become a capable hot keeper?
