how hard is it to get an exotic animal permit in your area? looked it up and it appears all member of the the family reptilia are illegal, up to a $10,000 dollar fine.

nah, these are in the subfamily Viperinae, whilst rattlesnakes are in the subfamily Crotalinae. the main thing that sets them appart (I belive) is that rattlesnakes posses heat-sensing pits whilst sidewinders do not.

They have a rattle.

Edit: They're in the same subfamily as rattlers -- Viperinae is exclusively old-world.

oops...I missed that link the first time...thanks...that was interesting. Now that is a snake I could get used to. Most snake heads are a bothersome shape for me...I love the horns and shape of the sidewinder's head.
