I do educational shows for students as well as adults and where i live it hard to show people certain animals ie chameleons, exotic snakes, and crocodiles. I was wondering if any one knew how to go about getting a permit for one or all three of these. To me I think having the animal to show the people why and how these animals (large snakes and crocodiles) don't make the best pet and only experienced people should own them. I live in massachusetts, so if anyone could help me i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

It will all depend on which state you are located in. You will need to contact your Fish & Game, or Dept. of Natural Resources to find out about all permit requirements.
 
In the blue pages of the phone book are the numbers for the state Fish and Wildlife offices, call any of them and ask to be directed to a gentleman named Bob Arini. They can transfer calls between office locations so you should be able to get ahold of him via any of the numbers.

Explain what you want to do... he'll send the permit forms. Fill 'em out, send them back and good luck.
 
Peter, as a general rule Massachusetts gives very few permits for reptiles. They will give certain permits for educational or research reasons if you can get some type of proof as to what you are planning on doing. Any permits for native/ endangered wildlife or crocodillians is difficult. Good Luck!
