Re: New to reptiles
- Hi Lisa,
Each state varies on their requirements for reptile keeping involving the types of reptiles that can be kept both on or off licence.
The links below are for VIC NSW QLD & WA respectively.
I hope this helps and enjoy your new hobby! A warning though it can be addictive : )
