Eastern box turtle laws of Tennessee?

Are there laws against keeping a turtle restricted wild, I wanted a PDF of the endangered extinction in TN, but the box turtle was not there, but some poeple are telling me they are in danger of extinction. Please someone straight.

From the website of the Resources Agency Tennessee Wildlife: "In Tennessee, no one can keep any animal as a pet in the wild that to the surprise of many including tadpoles, frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles, baby birds, squirrels, raccoons and deer young. "In most states, you need a permit to keep a wild animal, endangered or not, and it is illegal to do otherwise. TN is one of those states. Not to mention that most box turtles of adults do not take well to captivity and often carry parasites or diseases. Turtle populations are declining cash throughout the U.S. (Although in most places have not reached a "threat" or "endangered") because many people are taking from nature to keep as pets - this can be you have been listening. Please buy a captive bred turtle if you want one as a pet. BIG-B: In fact, by eliminating all of their original territories and bring your home, do not save them, but probably condemned them. Turtles are very territorial and maintain the same throughout its territory lives - most of those killed moved probably trying to return home, or died of starvation because there was too suddenyl in one place for their food sources of support. Those are the facts, and if not you like, you can kiss my ass - people like you are the reason that the box turtles in the end will be in danger. Another fact is that TN is illegal to keep a wild animal captivity without a permit, which I think is what jimivanclapton wanted to know.

    This video is fantastic. Having scuba dived on holdiay for the first time last year in Fiji i would love to experience caribbean waters. Scuba diving with turtles is something that my wife and i have always wanted to do. I also hear that small scuba diving holdiay companies offer a much better overall experience than larger ones. I think this years holdiays will definately involve scuba diving in the caribbean and by the look of this website your company offers a professional service. My wife and i will definately investigate the possibility of a scuba diving holdiay in the very near future. Good luck an happy sailing. Juk & Sue
