State laws regarding requested species
Prior to completing any transaction, you, the buyer are responsible for observing all regulations and laws regarding the importation and possession in your state for the species that you are requesting. Including lists of restricted and prohibited species. You the buyer, are solely responsible for acquiring any required documentation or permits for possession or importation of the species you are requesting. For this information you should contact your local Fish & Wildlife office. It is recommended that you obtain the information in writing and keep the information on hand and easily accessible. Keep in mind that pictures or comments posted on social media or simply word of mouth can prompt your local state Fish & Wildlife division or even US Fish & Wildlife to visit you unannounced for inspection of a potentially or even questionable species in your possession.
