They may seem like interesting pets, but many owners end up discovering theyr'e too much to handle.

Saturday, anyone with an illegal reptile or amphibian had a chance to surrender it to authorities without being punished.

The Suffolk County SPCA held an amnesty event at the Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown.

An illegal alligator was brought in.

The center also accepted a snapping turtle and a Greek tortoise, even though they are legal to own.
