    They are just glorified water python. Once you have the pleasure of playing with some of them you will understand. There is a few on licence in Queensland that I know of.

    I am surprised.
    No one here has been to the 2014 S&T Expo in Brisbane? They were on display.
    WLPs are legally held in Qld.

    Don't ask who has got them or if they have been bred or will there be any for sale.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I would love a pair if given the opportunity. (Yes I like Water Pythons too).

    There was a thread on here about 3or4yrs ago about them. They are legally kept in QLD.

    I kept and bred Water Pythons for a long time. I still have a friend looking after some of my group, the oldest of which is still my favourite snake and over 16 years old. They're my favourite Australian python. I like glorification so I'm really excited to be able to work with White-lippeds. Funnily, I'm not sure if doing it outside Australia will make it happen faster or not! I doubt they'll hold any value for long in Australia, but they're brilliant snakes. A bit like Water Pythons, if you get a good one it's an absolutely lovely snake, but if you get a bad one it's a bit of a nightmare!

    How did these snakes find their way into Australian private collections?
