    In QLD you have to have a demonstrators license.
    I'd imagine it wouldn't be cheap either..

    And after 2 years you have to show that you are doing around 200 shows a year to hold a exhibitors licence in NSW.
    Weeds out all tyre kickers does that one. Cheap is understatement every time you get or give away reptile costs $30.00 and paperwork. If you move snake from one enclosure to another cost $30.00 plus paperwork. Every cage used has to be bigger than necessary so takes up more room then theres the insurance. Its not just apply and get licence they do a lot of checks and a 300 page application to fill out, they make it really hard. The cost of licence is the cheap bit.

    HAHA yeh lol, Better off packing up and moving to VIC and paying the $180 annual fee and keep it. Sounds like the easiest and cheapest way

    Fresh water crocs only get to about 10 feet (3 metres) for males and 7 feet (2 and a half metres) for females.

    Hardly man killers if you treat them with respect, Olive pythons get larger in length than fresh water crocs and when handled correctly nothing untoward occurs there either.
