    my partner had to go and catch a snake for my brothers girlfriends parents it was in their computer room and they have a baby. well turns out the snake is quite big like 6-7 foot big. it looks like a coastal carpet. he now wants to keep it :/ i got my licence yesterday as we went out and brought two blonde spotted python hatchlings. i dont like big snakes atm. only gettin used to them. can anyone tell me the laws on wild snakes and if i can keep them and what i have to do please would be greatly appreciated :D thanks in advance

    ive caught heaps of wild carpets and never been bitten once they arent as aggressive as most people make out. They will normally only bite if you grab them to hard which most people do rather ease hand under them and lift them slowly and gently and youll never get bitten
