Indiana aims to clarify, strengthen rules on exotics
Some of the possible changes include banning the sale of turtles not native to Indiana with shells smaller than 4 inches long, and allowing people to take reptiles and amphibians native to Indiana from the wild as long as the number taken falls within a harvest limitation.
Most of the proposed changes do not substantially change but rather clarify previous policies.
A full document outlining the proposed changes can be found here.
Comments are being accepted online until a hearing occurs on the proposed changes. As of press time, no hearing had been set.
