No
Yes - If they're Appendix I listed, molurus, sanzinia, occidentalis etc. Often the chip can be kept with the paperwork as long as it accompanies the animal.

you mentioned molurus, is that covering burmese sub spices, or just the indian rock?

i thought burms were quite common in the wild

You haven`t mentioned Dumerils boas here & they`re also appendix 1 species, just thought i`d mention it.:)

I didn't list any of the Epicratus or Tropidophiidae species either. That's why I put 'etc'... :wink:

I'm not sure what other boids are Appendix one listed, but that's all I can remember off the top of my head 8)

Nope, I pretty sure they're not on it. There's only a few Epicratus species listed, subflavus being the only one I can recall right now. There should be a list somewhere online with all the species on it... 8)

subflavus (as mentioned)
monenis
inornatus

The other that is missing from the above posts is Bolyeria multocarinata (one of the round island boas). There is another of those boas but i can't for the life of me remember which :oops:

Cites

Also the Madagascan ground boa ( Acrantophis Madgascariensis ) and the Ceylon Python (Python Molurus Pimbura). Not 100% sure but the chips must go inside the snake as soon as the snake is big enough.

The pimbura no longer exists as far as cites is concerned - it was re-absorbed back into the molurus species ;)

To be honest, i can't remember the date, sorry.

It happened because they decided it didnt have sufficient differences from the molurus to be classed as a sub species - sorry, not much help at all, i know.

The only one you need to watch out for on your list is Boa constrictor occidentalis.
The easiest way to figure out if that is what you are buying is the cost, if it is less than £100 for a young one you are fine to have no paper work.

as far as i know if you are breeding them in your own home and they are not venomouse or really dangerous reps you don't need a dwe liscence, but check with your local council just in case.
