USARK: Constrictor Rule Update

Jun 23, 2014
by Editor in Chief

USARK - The notice will publish tomorrow (6/24/14) announcing a 30-day comment period. Comments will have a deadline of Thursday, July 24. This comment period relates to Boa constrictors, Reticulated python, DeSchauensee’s anaconda, Green anaconda and Beni anaconda. These species were not included in the 2012 rule and remain in limbo as the rule has not been finalized.

USFWS is re-opening comment in response to USARK’s legal arguments that the original 2010 proposed listing was “stale” due to new scientific information. USARK will be submitting detailed comments in response and will provide talking points for others. We will provide updates and additional information soon.
