    Unfortunately, I know for a fact that it's illegal to take wild fish that you collected live fish home with you in california home with you.

    I have one pending for an endangered animal, and I have had more trouble just getting sign offs validated multiple times as opposed to actually applying for it.

    Los angeles county's collection laws differ from other counties in the state, so the traditional fish and game lisence does not apply.
    Well I might have some connections if that's the case. I'll send a few emails and see what I can dig up.

    RES have the fewest restrictions, but even in LAC, they still have some of the strictest.

    I know in Riverside county, reptile collection of Rosy Boas 20 years ago was totally fine, but i have not looked it up in as many years.

    I know this is off topic but someday I want to try setting up a tank or pool for some of Puerto Rico's very own waterfall climbing Sirajo gobies.

    As for collecting natives, I might be up to some collecting in my area assuming it is old man proof - don't want anyone to try to rescue me by dragging my 250-pound carcass out of a pond. I also wouldn't want to be left in the pond ("hey if he wanted to be saved he should have been on a diet")

    If anyone is interested, there is a class at Citrus College in Azusa for local plants and it also delves into animal species, especially pertaining to SGV. The professor is the one that actually described the species of salamanders living in the canyon as a genetically unique, plus has a few similar accomplishments. It also allows you to get a collection permit at the student rates. I am not sure if there is animal specific ones, my sister took a few plant specific courses and he was the professor.
    I did not take the course, so I cannot comment on that workload too much, but the material was immensely interesting (I actually read the books for her class), so were the field trips. I would hike the mountains with my sister to help describe and catalog sightings and take collections, they also had a lot of trips around the area for class to do the same.
