NC, GA, and FLA are states with EXTEMELY Strict laws regarding buying,
selling and transporting exotics across their boarders. The laws are
somewhat "Stupid" as well. Stuff like listing very common exotics as
Protected and then holding people's feet to the fire if anyone is caught
owning, buying, selling or moving them in and out of the state without the
proper permits. I would imagine the store had to go through a lot of
State Red Tape to bring those snakes into NC to sell, and if the person
who stole them, are caught, The State will tack on HUGE charges for
transporting them out of the State.
