    Anyone with pet fish, birds, reptiles, or small mammals
    will be affected by this bill. Any company selling product
    or services for pet fish, birds, reptiles or small mammals
    will be affected by this bill. Would you be impacted
    by “The Nonnative Wildlife Invasion Prevention Act”? ?
    Virtually all fish in an aquarium are not native to the
    United States ? Most pet birds are species not native to
    the US ? Most reptiles kept as pets are not native to the
    US ? Hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and ferrets are not
    native to the US Under HR669, ANY animal not native to the
    U.S. would have to be placed on an “Approved” list created
    by the Fish and Wildlife Service, which does not have the
    manpower or financial resources to do it . Nonnative
    species includes virtually every bird, reptile, fish, and
    small mammal commonly kept as pets. Until an animal is
    placed on the “Approved” list, you would be banned from
    adopting, purchasing, selling, transporting across state
    lines, or breeding these animals.
