Is there a way to get a species prohibition in a state removed?

Currently burmese and reticulated pythons are banned in Montana. Is there a way I can petition for them to be allowed? Also, what about hybrids? Ball pythons are allowed here, but what about burmballs?

    Very unlikely that the prohibition will be removed. Those species were banned for a reason.

    Ussually if a particular species is banned, that ban would also include hybrids.

    You can move to a state that does allow the species. Or do some research and find out if you can get a permit to own the species.

    How about you just get a goddamned dog and be happy with it, Emily? Those pythons have no natural predators in the U.S., which is why they are wreaking such havoc in the Everglades.
