Updated to add links from the BC Ministry of Environment:
- Full list of species affected
- General Information and Q & A about the regulations
While I understand why people want to vigorously defend their rights to keep whatever they wish as pets, I've come to believe that, for the most part, none of the animals on this list belong in captivity anyway. So generally, I am actually in favor of this ban (with one caveat: I do think the regulations on boas and pythons are too restrictive). I expect that other jurisdictions will likely follow suit, eventually. Maybe I am just used to bans like this because I live in a city with restrictive laws already (we can't even have ball pythons here!). What do you think about the BC ban on exotics?
