Federal wildlife officials recently proposed strict nationwide limits on importing and shipping boa constrictors and four other snake species in an effort to prevent them from being introduced into the wild.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would prohibit bringing the snakes into the country and shipping them between states except for scientific and educational purposes. The rules would also apply to reticulated python, green anaconda, Beni anaconda and DeSchauensee's anaconda.
