 This  is  the  list  of  reptiles  &  amphibians  banned  by  "Indian  Wildlife  Act",  Schedule  1  Part  II,  either  hunting  or  keeping  as  pets.
 Amphibians  and  Reptiles
 1[1.  ***]
 2[1-A.  *****]
 3[1-B.  Audithia  turtle  (Pelochelys  bibroni)
 3[1-C.  Barred,  oval,  or  yellow  monitor  lizard  (Varanus  flavescens)]
 3[1-D.  Crocodiles  (including  the  estuarine  or  saltwater  crocodile)
 (Crocodilus  porosus  and  Crocodilus  palustris)]
 3[1-E.  Terrapin  (Batagur  baska))
 1-F.  Eastern  hill  terrapin  (Melanochelys  tricarinata)
 2.  Gharial  (Gavialis  gangeticus)
 2[3.  Ganges  soft-shelled  turtle  (Trionyx  gangeticus)]
 3[3-A.  Golden  gecko  (Caloductyloides  aureus))
 4.  Green  sea  turtle  (Chelonia  myclas)
 5.  Hawksbill  turtle  (Eretmochelys  imbricata  imbricata)
 3[6.  *****]
 7.  Indian  egg-eating  snake  (Elachistodon  westermanni)
 8.  Indian  soft-shelled  turtle  (Lissemys  punctata)
 9.  Indian  tent  turtle  (Kachuga  tecta  tecta)
 9-A.  Kerala  Forest  Terrapin  (Hoesemys  sylratiea)
 11.  Leathery  turtle  (Dermochelys  coriacea)
 12.  Loggerhead  turtle  (Caretta  caretta)

 2[15.  *****]  
 2[16.  ***]
 2[17.  ***]
 1[17-A.  ***]
 Anything  beside  this  can  be  kept  as  pets.
 However  trying  to  convince  Forest  officers  otherwise  is  hard,  as  they  tend  to  believe  that  everybody  but  themselves  is  criminal.
 If  anybody  has  to  add  to  this  kindly  do  so

 So,  kill  some  snakes  for  safety  of  the  society  and  you  are  a  local  hero.  Care  for  one  at  home  as  a  pet,  you  are  a  culprit.

 HI,
 
 i  used  to  have  axolots  and  few  hamsters,  a  giant  monitor  lizard,  a  sulphur  crested  cockatoo  and  1  pink  gala.  this  was  few  years  back  in  melbourne,  when  i  returned  i  gave  it  to  my  friends.
 
 At  present  no  herptiles  or  my  wife  will  throw  me  out  LOL!
 
 regards

 A  certain  young  member  in  this  forum  enthused  me  towards  reptiles  and  lizards.  He  is  conspicuous  by  his  absence  Confused  .  
 We  have  lots  of  mabuyas  and  geckos  to  choose  from  here.  I've  still  not  worked  up  the  courage  to  catch  one.  Would  like  to  keep  them  one  day.  I'll  stick  to  fish  for  the  time  being.

 @shankar
 I  guess  your  right.  But  I  have  known  people  who  keep  snakes  in  really  bad  conditions  (a  wooden  1  foot  cube  for  a  full  grown  adult  cobra   Thumb Down  )  Some  people  have  also  been  bitten  by  venomous  snakes  kept  at  home.  Moreover,many  people  indulge  in  milking  venomous  snakes,as  the  venom  is  really  in  demand  for  antivenom  production  units.  So  i  guess  the  act  is  for  the  good.  Smile
