If you are looking to adopt a ball python or iguana just google reptile rescue and whatever state you live in. You are bound to get some hits. Also, if you look on petfinder.com and search for reptiles there are usually an abundance of ball pythons and iguanas.

If prior coordination is in place, the authorities can place confiscated animals with a rescue facility, a zoo/museum, and/or a local herp club.

If the authorities don't know where to look for such options, they keep the animals in poorer conditions than the breeders did, and many of them die. Even if the herp keeper is later acquitted of all charges, they may get back a fraction of what was seized. I do not recall any record of financial compensation for animals which died while in custody. But I digress.

I thought after California's mess with "Operation Reptile Ranching" some people were recompensated after the sting blew up?
