Recently, the reptile community has been under even heavier attack. New legislation was passed last month which banned the importation and interstate transportation and sale of four large constrictors. The Burmese python, north and south African rock pythons, and the yellow anaconda. This prevents owners from taking their pets with them, should they be forced to move out of state. If they take them, it's a felony. Following this nationwide ban, some states have started to propose their own bans on reptiles and other exotic animals.
We decided that we weren't going to just sit around and do nothing. These are peyote stitch cuffs based on emerald tree boa, diamondback rattle snake, and blood python markings. Approximately 1.5" thick and 7" - 8" long (comfortably fits anyone between 5" - 8"; no extra charge for custom sizing). More of these will be made to represent other snake species. We have already done boa constrictors and ball pythons, and we'll try anything our customers ask for, even designs based on your unique pet snakes. These cuffs will be made to order as well as auctioned off to benefit some reptile organizations and rescues. Two examples...
USARK. The United States Association of Reptile Keepers. They fight for our rights as responsible reptile owners. Check out their website, support them, join them. We have strength in numbers. Protect your rights, and your animals! http://www.usark.org
The Burmese Python Initiative. This initiative was started as a solution to a big problem that will arise due to the large constrictor ban. Many owners will be forced to part with their snakes, and without any place to go, most of these animals would likely be euthanized. BPI is here to help. They are a permanent adoption intermediary for Burmese pythons, African rock pythons, and yellow anacondas. See their website for details and information on how you can help. http://www.savetheburms.org
