Does anybody know if one has to have any kind of permit to ship chameleons nationally? I have never heard of any kind of restriction on chameleons specifically but are there any individual state laws on exotics to be aware of??
I have been shipping veiled chameleons through the postal service. You do not need a special permit. I tell the post office they are chameleons. We write live chameleons on the outside of the box. They said they ship live animals all the time.
State of MA it is illegal to ship to or buy. The person must have a permit from the Division of Fisheries & Wildlife, and the breeder must sign an affidavit stating the animal is CB. Then they are allowed to ship to the person.
