 Interesting  discussion.  I  wanted  to  keep  snakes  too  but  although  been  told  that  imported  corn  snakes  and  some  pythons  are  legal  to  keep  (with  correct  papers),  I  could  never  get  round  to  keep  one.....no  permission  at  home!
 
 But  interestingly,  the  ban  on  snakes  although  puzzling  may  serv  its  own  purpose.  One,  killing  snakes  in  India  may  noit  be  illegal....especially  if  argued  in  self  defence!  Snake  killing  or  killed  by  snakes  are  not  considered  as  human  wildlife  conflicts  and  that  is  why  snakes  can  be  'legally  killed'.  Given  this,  it  seems  odd  as  to  why  snakes  can't  be  kept  as  pets.  However,  I  guess  the  fact  that  keeping  them  as  pets  is  discouraged  in  India  may  go  a  ong  way  in  oreserving  the  local  fauna,,,,,unlike  the  devstations  been  caused  i  Australia/New  Zealand.
 
 For  all  those  who  are  interested  to  know  how  (if  at  all)  snakes  can  be  kept  legally  can  try  Jayesh  Kumar  petstore  (NCR)

 It  is  not  true  that  all  native  replties  and  amphibians  cannot  be  kept  as  pets.
 Schedule  III  &  IV  of  the  Indian  Wildlife  Act  lists  animals  that  can  be  kept  as  pets  but  cannot  be  hunted.  it  contains  a  list  of  amphibians  and  repltiles.
 
 For  people  intrested  in  keeping  them  as  pets,  please  purchase  a  copy  of  "Indian  Wildlife  Act  1972"  from  any  law  book  store,  it  is  available  for  under  Rs.  100.  The  copy  on  the  web  might  not  be  updated.
 
 Kindly  do  not  ask  me  a  put  up  a  list  of  such  animals  on  IAH.  Very Happy  
 IAH  is  for  fish  and  let  us  keep  it  that  way.  Thumb Up

 BTW  CITES  is  not  a  legally  binding  law.
 It  is  a  agreement  between  various  countries  that  they  will  frame  their  laws  in  accordance  with  CITES.
 Each  country  frames  its  own  law  as  per  its  requirements.
 India  is  a  signatory  to  this  convention.
 However  each  animal  given  in  CITES  appendix  is  not  automatically  banned/restricted/premitted  in  India.
 As  far  as  I  know  none  of  the  Indian  law  make  a  reference  to  CITES  appendicies.
 At  the  most  knowledge  of  CITES  will  serve  as  a  reference  tool  in  India  and  will  not  have  a  legal  standing.

This  is  related  to  the  other  thread  about  Pythons  which  got  hijacked  by  someone  with  more  time  than  sense.  (I'm  not  referring  to  or  mean  any  disrespect  to  the  moderator  who  locked  that  thread.)
 
 Following  is  some  reference  material  regarding  importing  Python  species.  (All  Indian  species  are  endangered  and  ownership  and  sale  is  prohibited  by  Indian  laws)
 
 Reference  Articles  from  Convention  on  International  Trade  in  Endangered  Species  of  Wild  Fauna  and  Flora  (CITES)
 
 CITES:  Article  IV:  http://www.cites.org/eng/disc/text.shtml#IV
 
 Appendices  (which  mentions  all  but  one  Python  species  are  in  Appendix  2):  http://www.cites.org/eng/app/appendices.shtml
 
 I  am  reading  up  the  related  laws  in  the  Indian  Wildlife  Protection  Act  to  check  more  details.
 
 Cheers,
 Sid
 
 PS:  IAH  is  meant  to  share  knowledge..  Please  don't  make  (empty)  threats  to  people  just  asking  questions.  (Also,  get  a  life!)
 
 PPS:  The  only  reason  I  am  not  using  stronger  language  is  because  my  little  nephew  is  also  an  IAH  member.                

 
 XXXXXXXXXXLets  be  polite
 
 Before  reading  your  post  script,  i  was  under  the  impression  that  you  yourself  were  just  a  fifth  grader  who  jus  saw  nat-geo  and  thought,  'I  wanna  have  one  of  those  snakes  in  my  lil  glass  tank'..
 
 As  suggested  xxxxx  before  get  yourself  a  copy  the  wildlife  act  1972  from  law  publishers  India  pvt.  ltd.
 
 Even  if  you  manage  to  lay  you  hand  on  a  legally  obtained  wild  animal  just  think  of  the  illegal  trade  you'll  indirectly  be  causing..  I'll  give  you  an  example  to  get  it  straight  to  your  head..
 
 I  know  of  a  person  who  has,  through  legal  channels  procured  a  leopard  tortoise  on  the  way  back  from  abroad..  His  friends  and  family  were  excited  with  the  new  pet  and  they  wanted  one  too..  They  needed  to  spend  rs.xxxxx  for  the  tortoise.  They  approached  a  guy  at  charminar  and  got  a  star  tortoise  instead  for  rs.2xxx.  Now  you  can  find  star  tortoises  lying  in  buckets  at  charminar  very  often..
 
 Hope  you  get  it  mate..  If  your  thread  wasn't  suggesting  'I  am  looking  out  for  people  who  could  get  me  a  python'  i  wouldn't  have  bothered  about  it.
 
 Happy  new  year..  Keep  to  fish..  Let  the  wild  animals  be  in  peace.
 
 P.S:The  threats  are  definitely  not  'empty'..

 That's  a  beautiful  looking  python..Drool  
 
 I  am  glad  to  see  at  least  a  few  people  who  understand  the  fascination  towards  pet  reptilians  (like  pythons).
 
 I  know  a  few  people  on  IAH  who  have  pet  chameleons,  but  I  don't  want  to  name  anyone  as  some  James  Bond  might  get  all  sanctimonious  yet  again.
