with the Womas, the EPA told me when I was calling about the vens course that you need to have a rec (specialist) license to keep them, they classed them as they do vens, even the girl I was speaking to said it was strange, and she didn't know why that was the case.
Ozzie, it says on the info for the rec license that "...also allows keeping of a maximum of two (2) restricted reptiles or amphibians, other than dangerous reptiles..."
I am curious as to what is classed then as 'restricted reptiles'

The restricted reptiles are womas and green trees native to aust. You can have two but if you want more than two you need to upgrade your licence to a restricted novenomous for more. (Does not include vens)[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

This is now my understanding
The Qld rec wildlife license app says,
"...also allows keeping of a maximum of two (2) restricted reptiles or amphibians, other than dangerous reptiles e.g. reptiles of the families Elapidae, Hydrophiidae or Laticaudidae."
In the EPA doc entitled;
'Keeping wildlife privately in Queensland — Conditions and restrictions — Keeping and using controlled, commercial, recreational, restricted or international animals under a recreational wildlife licence''Recreational reptiles or amphibians
All least concern reptiles other than restricted reptiles are recreational reptiles.
All least concern amphibians are recreational amphibians.'
So, the only aspect not discussed is 'dangerous reptiles', so with that said, a BHP is not of either of the 3 families above (it is Aspidites melanocephalus), I would not imagine it is classed as a dangerous reptile, therefore I would suggest it can be kept on a standard recreational wildlife license.
If I am off the mark, I am sure someone will advise.
license...Give a man a fish and feed him for a day...
Teach a man to fish and feed him for a life time (or until fish become extinct, which ever occurs first)
Thanx for your help with that one everyone. i'm sure if i ring epa they can give me a diffinitive answer, will let you know what they say.
Womas, GTP, Rough Scaled and Oenpelli pythons are not "Least Concern" and therefore not Recreational animals.
You are missing the "Least Concern".Fool Injected Physhopath
