The state of New Mexico does not have a ban on monitor lizards unless I’ve missed something.

I think she is referring to a ban on live export from Tanzania pending an investigation on the smuggling of endangered species.

snowowl, rather than check here on the forum you should really check in 3 local places, 1) local herp vet, 2) local humane society and 3) local fish and game... with an asian water monitor be sure it isn’t under another local or state law such as large exotic or large carnivore law... there’s also the possibility of city regulations but rather than going direct to animal control I’d check the 3 places I listed... little safer than inadvertently turning yourself in just in case. I did all this before purchase.

The new ban is to ban for a better choice of words with no real knowledge on monitors. I voted yes.
