Default Dart frogs legal in my state?

I cant seem to find any recent information on keeping/selling darts in my state. Does anybody know a website or agency I can contact to find out if they are legal to keep/sell? I am located in CT. Thanks

Not really sure if anything is legal in CT look at what they are doing to the second amendment.

However i did find this

" CONN. GEN. STAT. 26-55 - Permit for importing, possessing or liberating fish, wild birds, wild quadrupeds, reptiles or amphibians.

No person shall import or introduce into the state, or possess or liberate therein, any live fish, wild bird, wild mammal, reptile, amphibian or invertebrate unless such person has obtained a permit therefor from the commissioner . . ."

So it appear you would need a permit. I will keep looking.

FWIW I had Dart frogs in NJ once upon a time without a permit

I may or may not know some one who may or may not have a pit viper in NJ, those are specifically prohibited by law.

The laws though having some good intent are overall very silly. For my house it is this simple, no invite, no warrant, no entry. No one will pursue "suspicion of keeping illegal amphibians" to the point of getting a warrant.

They're selling them at a Petco in Stratford, so I would say it's ok.
Never stopped me anyway

What does the second amendment have to do with his question?

I'm imagining the suggestions is that since the second amendment specifically guarantees certain rights and they have passed laws that restrict those rights, that the legislators in CT would have little issue passing laws that restrict laws that are Not specifically gauranteed by the constitution.

Dart Frogs were illegal to keep in CT not that long ago. There was a generalized law that considered them as "poisonous". That has since been corrected. NE Herp (in CT) used to have a blurb on their website about this. It is no longer there, however. If you want a point in the right direction I would contact them. Both Mike and Jessica are very accommodating with info.

NEHerp has a paragraph on their "About Us" page, and a link to the laws:

Yes me bringing up the second amendment was an overall gauge of how CT like to dictate what a person can or can't have at home. As far as the seizing of frogs in HI i just got smart on that. I do not however see this as a "crack down" on illegal amphibians.

As far as posting about illegal activities I found this thread http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/beg...-frogs-ct.html
And saw that a moderator said

So I thought most the forum has this attitude toward the topic.

I think he's just saying CT is one of those states that just likes banning stuff. Which is correct.

CT just did an assault rifle ban. The kicker is it required everyone who already owned one to register them by Jan 1, 2014. Between 10 and 15% actually did, so there are currently an estimated 300,000+ people in CT who are in felony possession of a firearm. It's been a huge news story, and based on what I read on the New England gun forums, many people in and around CT are quietly getting organized to fight back if there is a confiscation attempt.

Ok so this is getting stupid off topic. I love talking guns and politics and I'll do it all day if it's allowed to go on.

I would just recommend contacting NEHerp for particulars. They should know whats what as they operate out of CT.
