You can call your township office. They are illegal here as well. They do sell herps in our local pet shops as well. I called the city about it when I first got into herps. The woman I spoke to said that all reptiles are illegal. So I asked why they could be sold and she told me that there was a loop hole. She then proceeded to tell me that keeping them is only a big deal if someone complains and than they have a right to take the animals.
Moral of the story is: don't be a show off and scare the neighbourhood kids with your 16' Retic in the middle of the street
