what i dont get is they cant keep kimberley northerns,and plenty of other wa endemics that thrive in captivity,northerns are pretty hardy compared to westerns and centralians

I can only go by what I was told? Anyway..... You cant keep a spotted in WA????
Ummmm .... well, what can you keep if you cant keep the common species's?

We can import Elapids, monitors, frogs, turtles. They just have to be on the licencing system.
Pogona mitchelli are to me a lot better then central beardies but can't legally keep them yet ha.
Who says Arachnids are illegal to keep, got a regulation showing that or is it just an department that say things that aren't true...
We can get away with keeping WA native Arachnids and we have around 2-3 species of tarantulas and over 40 species of large scorpions.
This is what we can legally keep.

If you can get hold of some Selenotholus sp. Black from the Kimberley, you'll be one happy person since they are a beautiful looking spider and a good size.

Antaresia stimsoni stimsoni.
As Spotteds don't occur here we can't keep them, All the animals on our list occur naturally in WA.
If the person you got your Spotteds from had them in WA they were being kept illegally.

What I really don't understand about WA is the insane movement permit costs for animals

I just checked the paperwork on my macs and he had put his parents address on the paperwork so he must have had a qld licence. He must have got them here and cant take them back to WA and I misunderstood the story
Cant you just keep your spotted over there and say it is an overgrown stimmy? hehehehe "I just power fed it officer.... honest"

Well in Tasmania we cant even keep ANY non venomous snakes.
~♦◘-TASMANIAN REPTILE KEEPERS NEED FAIRNESS-◘♦~
~♦◘-EQUALITY BETWEEN ALL STATES-◘♦~
We can also keep SWCP's Don't EVER forget SWCP's.
For the above stated reasons I wouldn't even consider a move to WA, the reptile keeping laws are directed and governed by non herpers and often is fact contemptuous towards herpers. They go after even innocent and law abiding reptile keepers like bounty hunters when out to nab the few hard liners that don't march when orderedOnly The Best Will Do

The WA system may severly suck but their animals are awesome, 3/4 of my collection are WA animals and some of the best species you can get in Aus.
Thank god you can export them out and yes the fee's are a bit of a scam but if you want the animals you have to pay.
WA is a beautiful place but i would never live there due to not being able to import.
Worked to hard over the years to get the collection to were it is.HERPS - It's an obsession in the guise of a hobby

Nice place but our gov is evil!!!! I get why they do it due to the possible fact that reptiles do escape. They don't wanna have to deal with that but they are ways around it. Like say make all non-wa species be a cat 5 and not let anyone who had escapies own one (harsh but it would be better than nothing).
Also I would totally deal with a GTP being in quatenteen for a few months before I got it, if it means I could own one

i have been told that WA back in the day when they decided keeping herps was going to be the best state being aloud to keep nearly 300 species from most of aus ? then they cut it down again and again and again
