Reason being, FL has the most tropical climate in the Continental US. Most of our exotic pets, and feeders, are tropical as well and FL provides the kind of climate where if they were to espcape or be released ... they could take foot and begin to proliferate in an area where they are not native. Look at what is happening in the snake trade. A few dumb asses couldn't find places for their 12 foot Burms they raised ... so they relesae them into the everglades... Then you start hearing about how all the native species are struggling to compete with the new intruder. Now they are trying to ban the trade of all Boas and Pythons between states. These laws exist for a reason though... and I believe it is best to obey them where they exist. I never realized that Dubias were illegal there though. I wonder how many species of reptile are living wild in FL that are not native.

Crud! I am illegal! http://blapticadubia.com shipped no problem and I love these things. I would love to not have to buy so many crickets once my roaches get going. They are completely happy in the 95 degree heat on my lanai in a plastic container.
