Besides openly advertising selling a wild caught Virginia snake in Virginia, this guy thinks his garter snake is a corn snake.

I sent him a message telling him it's illegal to sell the snake, and that it's not even a corn snake. I also told him I've worked with garters and other colubrids and I'd be willing to take the snake to keep or re-release at a later time.


I feel super sorry for that snake.

I'm anticipating no reply or a negative one.

The best thing to do is email the ad to WildCrime@dgif.virginia.gov
Based on my experience the DGIF will just contact the person and tell them it is illegal. If it happens again the person selling the native species my get fined.

Yeah, I found an add that listed a northern pine for sale although it obviously wasn't wc from VA. I did the same and he thanked me for the info and removed the add.
