PH: Florida’s Tegu and Iguana Ban–What is the Solution?
by Editor in Chief
YouTube - If bans do not work, then what will solve the invasive species issue? In part three of this series, Professor Herp discusses literature on dealing with invasive species and proposes better solutions than an outright ban. There are various bills (SB906, SB1414, HB1415, and HB777) going through the Florida House and Senate that are aiming to ban not only the captive care of green iguanas and all tegu species, but also the sale and breeding of any “conditional species”. These bills are being proposed to counter the rising invasive species problem of these two reptiles. Many keepers, invasive species captors, and breeders are pushing back as this bill is unwarranted and will not solve the invasive species problem.
