Είναι νόμιμες οι σαύρες παρακολούθησης στον Καναδά?

Ανάλογα με το πού βρίσκεσαι, μπορεί ή δεν μπορείτε να κρατήσετε μια σαύρα παρακολούθησης ως κατοικίδιο στον Καναδά.

Η Βρετανική Κολομβία επιτρέπει την κατοχή των περισσότερων σαύρων Monitor που βρίσκονται συνήθως στο εμπόριο κατοικίδιων ζώων, με κάποιες εξαιρέσεις.

Μερικές από τις πιο δημοφιλείς σαύρες παρακολούθησης κατοικίδιων ζώων, όπως Ackie Monitors (Varanus acanthurus), Οθόνες Savannah (Varanus exanthematicus), και Timor Monitors (Varanus timorensis) are generally allowed.

This is however not the case for Ontario, and the regulations can vary from city to city.

Για παράδειγμα, Toronto has stricter regulations that prevent all species of Monitor lizards to be kept as pet.

If you are planning to adopt a pet Monitor, make sure to check your local regulations.

Below is a list of Monitor lizard species that are prohibited to keep in Canada (including BC):

  • Δράκος του Κομόντο (Varanus komodoensis)
  • Οθόνη Nile (Varanus niloticus)
  • Perentie Monitor (Varanus giganteus)
  • Variegated Monitor (Varanus varius)
  • Παρακολούθηση νερού (Βαρανός σωτήρας)
  • Bengal Monitor (Varanus bengalensis)
  • Crocodile Monitor (Varanus salvadori)

All these species of Monitor lizards are illegal to own, breed and transport anywhere in Canada.

If a species is not listed above, it may be allowed, but a permit may be required depending on its size and your specific area of residence.

  • Οθόνη Ackie (Varanus acanthurus)
  • Savannah Monitor (Varanus exanthematicus)
  • Asian Water Monitor (Βαρανός σωτήρας)
  • Pygmy Mulga Monitor (Varanus gilleni)
  • Timor Monitor (Varanus timorensis)
  • Any other Varanidae not listed as a prohibited species

Restricted species of monitor lizards can be owned, bred and transported without a permit if they are smaller than two metres (this is usually the case for smaller species like Ackie monitors).

A permit is required if the lizard reaches a length of over two metres as an adult.

All species of Monitor lizards, regardless of size, cannot be released in the wild under any circumstances.

Πάλι, regulations vary between regions and sometimes even cities.

Δυστυχώς, it is not possible to legally own a Monitor lizard in Toronto.

This is in accordance to the TORONTO MUNICIPAL CODE CHAPTER 349, ANIMALS which states that the following animals are prohibited:

(…)

REPTILES
Crocodylia (such as alligators, κροκόδειλοι, gavials)
All snakes which reach an adult length larger than 3 metres
All lizards which reach an adult length larger than 2 metres
OTHER
All venomous and poisonous animals

(…)

Sadly, all Monitor lizards fall into one or both of the categories highlighted above.

Even though most Monitors that are kept as pets do not reach 2 metres in length as adults, all species are venomous and therefore forbidden in Toronto.
