I'm wondering if there is ne thing a person like me with a very small limited collection of smaller snakes could do to somehow help change the laws. Would petitions ect. work? I am willing to help out in any way I can. Please let me know what I can do to be a help in this matter. Its really quite important to me. I mean the I love the smaller snakes like corns ect. but I am really interested in getting into the boids also. I also think that the laws are kind of fuzzy. Because when they say "no constrictors" it kind of is confusing because, like I said a corn is a constrictor. But yet u are allowed to have them???? I dunno, I think its really important that Sask go over thier laws again. Thanks again.

Well, last night I typed up a very long reply to this thread. When I went to post it, I had been signed out already and lost everything I typed.

Anyways the site with the laws is www.geocities.com/hissca/ - it is the provincial reptile club’s website. The club has just had an influx of new members, as well as a minor change in directorship.

Anyways, in the laws, notice they restrict snakes of the family boidae. While it has been argued by some that many colubrids are “constrictors”, only boas and pythons are restricted in Saskatchewan, by law.

The laws may change soon, I have been told of the new draft. No pythons and boas are being deregulated unfortunately.

The whole Saskatchewan Environment department got some major cuts, and the is being restructured. The guy who used to be in charge is no longer in charge, and this can only be a good thing for our chances to keep some boidae in Saskatchewan.

Last time I discussed the laws with that guy, he said no boas or pythons would ever be deregulated because they felt the government could be held liable if anything ever happened after reversing a ban.

I also know, that hognose snakes are restricted from keeping on the new draft of the law – and that they denied an import permit for some to someone in province last month (before the restructuring).

From the attitude of the guy who was in charge, we should feel lucky to keep any reptile or exotic animal – as he did not agree with it. Really, the only reptiles restricted at all right now are boidae and venomous. If a person was successful getting the laws changed for small boidae – there would probably be less than 10 somewhat common small species you could keep anyways, and they’d be sure to restrict many more species of things we can currently keep legally.

I know I am probably forgetting a lot of things that were in my original, but hopefully this helps answer some questions.
