    I say no. I'm broke enough just from stocking up on supplies hahaha I'll have to claim bankruptcy if there's an option to buy the animals too...

    Why aren't we allowed to purchase animals at the show? I am not saying it is a bad thing or anything just curious as to why?



    My dad was fascinated by this stall, this it was the first time he had saw GTP's.

    I don't get why DERM didn't have a stall. Would be good to talk to some officials from the department rather than make assumptions about all their confusing regulations. I swear QLD parks and wildlife weren't nearly as confusing a decade ago...

    I haven't been keeping reptiles in Australia for that long, and i am starting to sense that DERM aren't as good as they made them selves out to be haha
