Constrictor Snakes as Injurious Wildlife: What It Means for Snake Owners

On March 23, 2012, four species of constrictors (Burmese python, Northern and Southern African pythons, and
yellow anacondas) were listed as injurious wildlife under the Lacey Act. This fact sheet was developed to answer
the public’s questions about the listing and ensure an understanding of what the listing means in terms of transporting and housing these species. It also includes a section for snake owners that answers any questions they may have around these new regulations.
