    You know, I don’t educate professionally. But if I didn’t have my sweet ball python, so many people would still be afraid to be near a snake in general. At least he’s opened eyes when I take him to the store or show him to my friends. Education is sooooo important. We’re so isolated otherwise and isolation begets fear.

    What is the point in saving a species if it will never be able to live in the nature again because their home environment is destroyed? Animals should be conserved in their natural habitat with our help. If kept in vivariums, they cannot fulfill their purpose in the ecosystem. They just don't really belong between our walls, like the animals that we have a mutually useful relationship with (work/food) which lead to domestication. Please don't kill me for my opinion, but the pet trade/keeping/"education" just went too far lately...

    Hey Chandler! I’m living proof of a person who fell in love with reptiles after learning about them and not fearing them at my former job. I’m in South Florida (Broward) and have worked at the Museum of Discovery and Science as an educator and became one of the youngest reptile handlers. Now, I am at Strictly Reptiles and have heard that you have stopped in there. I have wanted to meet you for so long and work on Saturday when I am out of school. I would absolutely be honored if you came, and would like you to know that as a younger person interested in zoology and reptiles, that your videos and stories have influenced my ability in handling and overall knowledge. Thank you if you see this💙💙

    Its ridiculous, i understand why some of these rules are in place, there are people out there that shouldnt even be allowed to own a cat or dog. let alone be let loose with qn 10 to 20 foot snake, however people like yourself who can prove they are responsible enough and go through every hoop imposed to show they know what there doing repeatedly only to have it all taken away because someone didnt follow saftey guide lines and got bitten or even worse lost someone is unfair, you shouldnt have to pay for there mistakes.. impose tighter guidelines, perform more regular spot checks come down hard and punish those in breach of the rules but dont take them away, and making it so only zoos can have them is a joke how many people have been attacked in or at zoos or even killed where dangerous animals have escaped. Worst case scenario isn't there any way you can apply for a zoo permit?

    Done! Thanks for all y’all do! Here was ONE of my messages Lol. The rest were also along these lines but tailored to the question. All supportive of what y’all do :) “As a former person with a complete phobia to snakes, I owe my knowledge to the responsible keepers that I have encountered in FL and have seen virtually on UZload. My education on PROPER keeping and husbandry is because of them. Should someone decide to keep reptiles, these are the ambassadors people need to follow. Their peers. People they relate to. Nothing about what they say encourages ME to keep these species included in this list. Their education that they provide while PHYSICALLY SHOWING me the animals actually detours me. Im not sure it would have that impact if I did not physically see these animals while being taught about them. Zoos do not have that impact especially in today’s age. Focus further on how to keep them contained and Keeping responsible keepers responsible. But limiting the species all together to accredited zoos does nothing. It will make people do it illegally and make the problem worse. Allow these educators to educate. Thank you.” So

    Hey everyone there are also many other Florida private owners who have Green Iguanas,Tegus and some turtle species that are on FWC hit list. We need to stay together on this and support USARKFL. If FWC gets away with this they will start targeting more and more non-native species😮

    Great video you guys. I live in Illinois and I started watching your videos during being off work from last year from shattered left foot and I have learned so much from Chandler, Tyler, Dingo, Camp K, Davidsfeed, Chrissweet , most of which are educating me though you tube from their private collections. I use to fear snakes and kill them if I found one but never again any I've learned from you guys how important they truly are to are environment. Just like I always tell people spiders here in Illinois are a good thing and people get scared even hearing the word spider, but I enjoy seeing the webs around my yard and property cause they keep the insects and mosquito population down. So what I'm trying to say is we need people like you guys even on a home UZload platform to educate more people like me so we can learn and benefit from it and pass it on to others cause at the end of the day we're all one big community and we need to protect the animals we have before it's to late and they're all gone!! THANK YOU CHANDLER!!

    Too many people have the mindset that their voice doesn't matter or a be silent and things will blow over. I used to broker exotics as Kens Exotics, no one would stand up for their rights to own, breed and sell exotic mammals. Many have that she, don't draw attention to yourself attitude which led to the gambian rat ban, and 5 year ban on prairie dogs. The 5 year ban on prairie dogs led to a decline on the amount of wild prairie dogs since ranchers no longer had any reason to waste pasture on them... They culled off their colonies. Everyone, reptile, mammal, fish and bird enthusiasts need to fight the good fight together!

    You guys are also teaching people how to identify invasive species that shouldn't be free roaming and that people can report to fish and wildlife i think this should be a core topic of your argument so that with the education of the public they can better identify and report invasive species its something we promote here in Australia

    Just hope you would have someone come decorate and organize ALL enclosures like Dingo’s or professionally done like the snakes natural habitat! Pls pls pls! Think about the snakes! They are already captured and “kidnapped” in a tiny glass box pls make them nice looking and enjoyable for the snakes! Make bioactive enclosures! ☹️

  • Itzel Becerra
    Itzel Becerra

    Snakes need to be able to roam several miles in the wild and you keep them in a tiny glass box... So sad. I’m actually not opposed on them banning these snakes, it’ll be a few more species that should be left alone AND IN THE WILD WHERE THEY BELONG!

  • Itzel Becerra
    Itzel Becerra

    I just wish your enclosures were nice and professionally done like Dingo Dinkelman.... Seriously tho! You’re awesome to watch and your personality is incredible I just wish you would put that energy into the enclosures and make them look lively and professional! No shade or hate just my true feelings and I hope other people feel the same way! I just want something enjoyable to look at and enjoyable for the animals! You should consider having someone come and decorate the enclosures and add things that are in the natural habitat of the snakes... If you go watch Dingo’s enclosures you’ll see what I’m talking about. If you’re gonna keep these animals in a tiny glass box... AT LEAST make it nice and enjoyable to the eye pls! Poor snakes, all his enclosures look so painful and boring.. I feel bad for the snakes. PLS TAKE THIS ADVICE! 😕

    come on, you tell me that they are going to go to every f-ing home in Florida to see if you have breeders of retics and im talking about the people that have them as pets that dont show them and dont tag them. i know 17 people that have retics and they are not tagged. fish and game better start looking for them trust me if they make it were you cant have them any more, there will be more to worry about then snakes trust me, lets say that the k-9 will be next on that list of cant have, and i dont mean normal dogs, hybrids are more there tape to let go down there, i know i be one of them to let go hundreds of them, just to say f-you to fish and game if they told me that i had to get rid of my snakes, cant jail us all.

    What FL is doing, let alone the FL Fish and Wildlife, is contradictory and abrasive. They're encroaching the keepers abilities to own and educate species without even discussing better ways of doing this. There's so many loopholes it's extremely sad. As a person who wishes to have her own collection some day, I'm going to fight back to make sure the community wins. In the UK they once tried to ban kingsnakes just because of the one place (forgot where. Think Canary Island?) where kingsnakes are invasive. The reptile community fought back HARD. The ban was absolutely stupid because kingsnakes would not survive the harsh, cold seasons (especially winter), and they would have end up banning those snakes for no good reason. Let's fight for our animals, guys! 🐊🐢🦎🐍

    Humans, as the custodians of wildlife, it is our duty to protect it for generations to come. Whether that be in the wild or captivity. As commercial progress is wiping out wild populations or breeding grounds we need to have captive colonies of these and all animals for future generations. I want my kids and grand kids to be able to see these beautiful creatures too see them in the wild, zoos or online educational videos not just in books or having to travel the world to "maybe" see them if they are lucky. Not everyone can travel, but they can visit their nearest zoo or watch their favorite utuber or other streaming device interact with the animals. We need more Steve Irwin's, Jack Hannah's, Jeff Corwin's, and Jane Goodall's for the next generations. If people can't see or touch these animals they loose concern for them and won't care if they go extinct. It is unfortunate that these animals in the past have been released for fear of being caught with them due to restrictions, natural disasters or not having the education of care of these animals. That's why it is important for some regulation but this is going overboard. It will lead to more black market trade and more releases into the wild. For example: let's say a trade has a load of legal animals, but are not native to the area, and in that load they have illegal ones as well and for fear of getting caught they dump them. Not only have they release more of the illegal animals they released new species to the wild that shouldn't be there. You have now made the problem worse. What's working now is fine. You are holding these keepers responsible already with the laws you have. Right now I understand the license is free, you should charge for it and put that money towards capture and eradication of these animals in the wild to protect native species. The problem is already there and well established and at this time there is no getting rid of it. Use that money and put a bounty on them i'm sure there would be plenty of people willing to do the job. Putting a ban on them isn't going to help the majority of people who have these animals can be taught or are responsible keepers with the laws in place.

  • Sawyer

    This is honestly the same argument as guns. Doesn't matter how many are put on the list, if people want these animals they'll get them. If they get them and don't want them, they'll just be released and the problem continues. It's just unfortunate that the fwc is trying to ruin lives for people.

  • Cowgirl6221-Txangel
    Cowgirl6221-Txangel

    Truthfully people that are dumping animals are not the ones that are getting permits anyways. Its crazy to block animals that were released by acts of nature for the most part. I really hate that they say youtube is not an educational platform, and they are removing the ability to expose children to reptiles at programs that they will likely never see anywhere else.

    Yeah not to be negative but if the FWC is now stepping in its not good there's to many rich politics that hate these animals and thinks we should´nt be able own any of them plus they have the FWC in there pockets. I mean they must right because look at all the chemicals they spay every year in lake okeechobee killing the environment and wildlife. So thats why i dont think this is gonna go good for Florida reptile owners. Hey this doesn't mean that all the FWC officers don't care because im sure alot of them do it's just its there bosses that pull all the strings. So like i said politics and when it comes to that we lose. Oh and love the channel brother plus DAMN!!Son getting big brother from lifting all them crocodilians

    Whilst I don’t think they should be prohibited, I do think breeding needs to be controlled. They do not make good pets as you said, in fact some can be very dangerous and they belong in the wild. There are probably 100s if not 1000s being kept without a permit and not receiving proper care.

Also, you have helped me educate my children on snakes and not be scared of them. The fact is everyone of you keep my children’s attention in a great manner. I’m going to do what I can from Indiana. Keep your heads up and I just hope the state of Florida understood that what you guys do is a service and conservation of these beautiful animals. #Meatballclick.

    The only problem with this is...No matter how well you have venomous reptiles contained, no matter how many locks you put on their cages or house them in "snake proof" buildings, once another hurricane hits and destroys those buildings, you're still going to have the problem with venomous snakes being released into society. Putting everyone at risk, including the animals themselves. So no matter how responsible you are, you have no control over mother nature.

    I feel like florida fish and wildlife are just playing safe. Regardless of whether or not you guys are responsible, things can happen, human errors or disasters. And when those animals get loose even if it wasnt intended, the damage they can bring to the ecosystem is far more worrying than your desire for keeping those animals. I get that you guys wanna keep them for whatever reason, but those wants dont outweigh the damage it can potentially lead to.

    • KDiGee

      @Shade Crenshaw I completely agree, but that doesnt really do much for the fact the I've just stated right? For sure, they should do better on that part too but that doesnt validate the idea of allowing another potential threat to the ecosystem (i.e. keeping some reptiles).

    • Shade Crenshaw

      But they do nothing about feral cats a way worse issue. Killing 270 million mammals and 68 million birds a year just in florida by the way. Many of these animals are owned and irresponsible owners let them out to do this. Not to mention the diseases they bring infecting small mammals and pumas which by the way are endangered in florida. But they do nothing about this only bitching about reptile owners because it's what the news talks about. Educate yourself it will keep you from looking stupid.

    This won't change the minds of irresponsible owners who already don't bother to follow regulations, and it will in fact make the black market for certain species even worse. The only people this will affect are the responsible, law-abiding keepers who take proper precautions. That's the last group of people you need to be worrying about! I can't express how much I love and appreciate you and Kenan both. You are incredible educators and also help to inform me of how I can take action to help with this kind of stuff. I hope to follow in your footsteps someday.
