Does anyone know which species are illegal specifically? I've tried to research and can't find any clear answer. From what I understand, Dubia are legal (I certainly hope so, I own a very, very large and thriving colony) but hissers and such tropical species are illegal because they are labeled as "nuisance" animals. I am looking to get a few Therea petiveriana as pets and wasn't sure where they fell as far as the law is concerned. They are not a tropical species and have a ridiculous lengthy maturation and reproduction process.

Anyone know?
