i cant speak for GA, but that seems a bit odd...(or a conveinent ending to conversations) for example, here in Charlotte, i found out its illegal to sell a extoic animal as a pet but not against the law to keep one.... as a for what constitutes an exotic pet, i never did find out... :| worst case scenario, just call up some type off (quasi)official entity (animal control/humane soc./etc) and ask... it certainly cant hurt to ask questions....

ps- welcome to tonmo! :welcome:

walking catfish are Clarias species...

Get to four feet long and when they get bored/run out of food in one pond they can travel through the night to another one!

the only fish to have caused a road accident by crossing it! LOL :smile:
