Can a snake be classified as a "service reptile" and brought into a business as such ? Anyone know ?

For a service pet, you do need to be legally certified through the government and obtain a license for same. You need to be able to prove your disability and the service the pet would provide. I am sure talking with your doctor would provide a clearer picture on if it could happen.

You do need to do so legally, and not just say your pet is a service pet so you can bring your pet into stores.

No. Service dogs must be certified to be granted unrestricted access to public areas.

Perhaps you are confusing "service animal" with "emotional support" animal, which dont really have legal rights to public access. So the answer is still No
