Is Reese Witherspoon going to be animal rights activists next target?

America's sweetheart has been sporting a brand new designer bag around town made out of an exotic animal!

Witherspoon has been snapped several times carrying the uber-luxe Chloe Paraty python and leather purse, which she clearly didn't buy in California because the popular snakeskin has been banned from sales in California since 1970 - and has the details.

According to the California Penal Code Section 653o it is unlawful to import python into California for commercial purposes, to posses with intent to sell, or sell within the state, however, it is not illegal to purchase python in another state and carry it over.
