    Where do all the old snakes go?

    It's a thought that has been bugging me for quite a while so I thought I would put it to the forum. You see plenty of 1-4 year old snakes around, plenty in the sales and picture threads. But what happens to all of the older models? These captive bred animals are meant to be able to survive 15...

    Vic licence

    I'm just a bit confused as to whether or not I am eligible for a concession when buying a licence. I am 14 so obviously a concession but I don't have a concession health card like one shown on the DSE website. So student school cards, credit cards etc don't prove concession? or what's the deal.

    Wild reptiles and education within Australian schools, is it adequate?

    Living in the UK this is not a subject that is covered within our schools. With the number of venomous snakes you have in Australia it got me thinking. How fully is the subject of safety addressed within your educational system?, does this depend on geographical area?, and do you think its...

    Woma Vs BHP- first snake

    Hey I'm looking at getting my first snake and would like you opinion on whether a SA woma or one of the bhp locales would make a better first snake? I would also love an olive but from what i can gather they are a little snappy when young and not the best idea as a first snake. Cheers Madders
