Mulgaaustralis I didn't think you could get them any more as they were the only ones I couldn't keep on the venomous licence, but when I was a kid they used to sell them in the pet shop in the salt water tanks here in brisbane.
My internet is so slow!!!
There is probably some sort of license that you can have them on, but non of which are available to the general public. Like I said licenses don't stop anyone.
Even if you could get them, my opinion is that they would soon die in captivity without proper care... which is impossible to cater.
I'm 99% it's a mangrove snakes, most likely Macleays, Brockadam or a Arafura.
Regardless, mangrove snakes are amazing animals and it's good to see them around.
I dont know have to ask him. He has had them for some time and I remember he did say they were a pain to get. just did not look anything like a mangrove according to google. I will get back to you on it next week.
Or mabe a keel back
Maybe they were eels.
I have a morey eel, I'm going to get rid of it you hardly ever see him and he has expensive taste in fish.
Mangrove snakes are homalopsidae.
Australian bockadam (Cerberus australis) at the Australian Reptile Online Database | AROD.com.au
Macleay's water snake (Enhydris polylepis) at the Australian Reptile Online Database | AROD.com.au
White-bellied mangrove snake (Fordonia leucobalia) at the Australian Reptile Online Database | AROD.com.au
Richardson's mangrove snake (Myron richardsonii) at the Australian Reptile Online Database | AROD.com.au
There's several others that have been split from the above.
And yes AROD does incorrectly place them in colubridae.

I wouln't mind geting a file snake they look good.
They are amazing animals... but Bockdams and Macleays are much better captives.
Much more active and easier to care for.
I've never seen them for sale.
australian lungfish is a big no no!
I nealy got a giant gourami before I started my native tank I might still get one but i'd rather keep it inside they seem to
have a lot of caricter.
I find a lot of people like the albino ones, but I like the original colour better.

Jason why are lungfish a no no? I have been considering one theres also a pacu I have my eyes on but the costs down the end of the road are quite high!
Have to agree with GGs, I just hate how people treat them like gold fish always keeping them in such small tanks.
