The proposed regulation provides for the implementation of authority granted by S.C. Code of Laws section 50-15-55 and establishes the list of Restricted Nonnative Wildlife. This includes species that have the potential to become established in this State in sufficient numbers to become a nuisance and/or pose a demonstrable deleterious and widespread threat to wildlife, agriculture, or human health and safety. Regulations include restrictions on possession, sale, offer for sale, transfer of possession, import, release, reproduction, and escape of designated species and associated permitting. The Black and White Tegu (Salvator merianae) is added to the list of Restricted Nonnative Wildlife, and regulations establish specific provisions for the possession and permitting of this species.
