Video of my Alligator Snapping Turtle out of his tank coming straight for me.
According to RCW 40.5.4861, possessing an animal which is listed as an endangered species (such as the Macrochelys temminckii [snapping turtle]) is a crime punishable by a minimum of 3 years in prison and fines totaling $3,742 in the State of Washington.*
good luck with that.
oh and by the way- thats all a lie. it is not a crime to have them as pets because they are not on the endangered species list (or even on the list of animals which they are concerned will become endangered anytime soon). also, they have been found in the Columbia river basin meaning that they naturally inhabit Washington so they are not illegal. they are however illegal in the state of California.
