Legal Or Illegal is the ?

Sorry this is really long but I had to do it. I bought my first boa a month ago. I've been addicted to forums ever since, but every where I went there was one question that was unanswered. So after one wasted day of work, I have an answer. The question you ask, what is legal and Illegal to import/export between the Canada and the U.S.? The answer is believe it or not, NOTHING as long as you have the right paper work filled out. Now remember what I'm about to show you is only Fedral, Provincial/State Law will have to be checked by you(ex. Alberta has withdrawn from the administration of CITES). I checked both Canada and U.S. because both can vary.

So if you want to check other animals here are links to the websites were I found this info.
This is the main site, http://www.cites.org/

Good information..........You did your research. However, there are is 1 thing I'd like to correct. If you are importing CITES appendix 2 animals from another country you only need the export permit from the foreign country.........you do not need a Canadian Import permit to accompany the export permit.
