just a few questions reguading red bellies guys
so i live in qld and i believe that on a standard RWL you are able to keep up to 2 restricted reptiles, does this include elapids like red bellies?
also i have heard from a lot of people that red bellies have really nice temperments when they are...
Hi all, I'm Mel.
I have been stalking your threads for a while now and the other day I joined and started "liking" things... The next natural progression seems to be a hello post.. ;)
I'm in Newcastle and have ordered our first little snakey to join the family.. I was going to get one at...
This little fella was found sitting up on top of a bin full of hessian bags last friday in 45 degrees.
Moved like a rocket when discovered.
Relocated to a nearby pond full of all the good things in life. Reeds frogs and water skinks as far as the eye can see.
My brother visited me tonight which was nice, but it meant that I was a little distracted when feeding my baby beardie. His viv has a slide out plexiglass front and an open top. I usually take out the plexiglass, get Lumiere out and put him in his feeding pen and put the plexi back. After...
I'm pretty sure I heard a while back on a program, that there are a multitude of venomous snakes in Australia that aren't considered medically significant to Adults.
Is anyone able to tell me what genus' they were alluding to? (I already know about Boiga).
I am writing this to elaborate on the DEC post "$3000 fine for conservation, or something ;-)" I just want to highlight the "conservation" efforts of our Wildlife Departments in recent months. Firstly, I made reference to a mining project that's on the cards for Northern NSW
This is getting serious now I think, people are starting to look at me strange! In the space of about 3 weeks we will have acquired 3 new snakes (jungle, diamond and a md) as well as a new baby beardy.
We are yet to pick up our MD, which should be this weekend I believe. After that, we really...
As the title suggests, im after colletts snake husbandry info.
from what ive gathered online i understand:
They are a larger elapid so a 4x2x2 enclosure would be ideal. Temps around 30-35 hot end as the are from the northern parts of aus.
Feeding id imagine would be the same for most elapids...
As the title says guys, what is your favourite reptile, and why is it your favourite? Also how did you guys get into keeping reptiles?

Today I cleaned the enclosure of my cb 2010 female collett's black snake. While she was checking out all the new smells I took some pictures of her. At this moment they are by far my favourite species in my collection. I really enjoy them a lot. They are not only gorgeous snakes to see, but...
I thought I'd have some fun and post some shots of a snake i recently caught and see who can ID it first.

I´ve a question about the colouration of Pseudechis colletti.
Juvenile snakes have all a brightfull colouration from red/black to orange/black.

Ok, so I was talking to a mate of mine and flicking through the elapid thread, and it got me wondering, how many female ven keepers are actually out there? That actually own them on their license and not just their other halves owning them etc...? And got into keeping hots, on their own accord...

HI All, Are you able to keep GTP's in QLD on a standard Recreational Wildlife Licence. I have looked on the epa sight and I'm still not 100% sure. My license says;
Conditions for: Keeping live commercial and recreational reptiles and recreational amphibians
Agency Interest: General
A guy on another forum made these disparaging remarks about our elapids.
His comment was:
I decided to reply and thought that some of you would enjoy these pics as well. I am sure that you will agree that we have plenty of brilliantly coloured snakes that are various shades of olive...

I'm doing a project about these snakes and was wondering if anyone wanted to maybe send me a photo of theirs that i could use for it? Also a bit about their behavior (couple of sentences)
THANK YOUU :D
I was recently having a discussion with mate about the top 10 most dangerous snakes in the world, he does not think Australia is home to more than half of the top10. so can anyone name the top 10 most dangerous snakes in the world?
I've been asked many times why we don't have a Reptile Expo in SE Qld, eg. Toowoomba,Gold Coast or anywhere in SE Qld
So Why not ???
It takes a hell of a lot of hard work and no thanks and all blame - but don't let that put you off

Just got a phone call about some news broadcast on the radio today. Apparently a keeper has been bitten by a Colletts Snake. They are the only details I have but hopefully, whoever it is will recover quickly.
Hi is anyone able to identify this snake for me. I found it in my backyard yesterday and have been searching for an answer but at this stage I'm not sure if it's an Eastern Brown or a Coastal Taipan? Any help is appreciated
Hope the photos are big enough!
