    ok a morbid question but been thinking about it. What happens when the licenced person dies, what can the family member do about selling the reptile/s when there not the rightful licence holder? I assume they would need the death certificate to prove and im not sure lol

    When my dad passed away I purchased my own licence and his carpet python was transferred onto mine via dpi... I don't remember having to display a death certificate but I was 16 at the time

    I don't know what's involved but I've already decided who I'm handing mine down to...

    I'm not sure... unless you specified in a will or something they would probably go to dpi and go into the ballot..

    No ballot in queensland.
    If it is a concern of yours then find someone you trust to deal with the matter if it arises.
    From what I have been able to find out a nominated person can find homes for the animals after someone has passed. Provided of course they are going to licensed persons, movement permits are completed etc.

    i am actually the nominated person in someone's will and it is my job to look after details of it ever happens. In this case
    hundreds of animals so I hope it never happens for
    more reasons than one.

    In qld next of kin is given a short grace period before having to get a licence to either trade all held animals or keep them

    Hmmm,interesting question...My son who lives with me and has his own licence and reptiles would probably just adopt all my critters, he has 6 pythons, various bluies and a monitor ATM whilst I have 4 species of dragon and a pair of pythons
