    Hi Brandon,
    Based on the timing of this post I'm guessing you're in SA?
    As each state has different licensing

    This is the link to: https://www.wildlife.vic.gov.au/keeping-and-trading-wildlife/licences-annual-returns

    Your wildlife book will come with the return forms (and a copy).

    THIS IS FOR VICTORIA ONLY, AN ANNUAL RETURN FOR RECORD OF WILDLIFE YOU'VE BRED, SOLD OR BOUGHT BETWEEN 1st April 2017 and 31st March 2018

    You put the Species Code (linked above with species codes), eg Tanami Woma, scenticific name Aspidites Ramsayi which is Code 2613 (back when I had one in 2013 in Vic) so put the relevant code in the top right corner.

    Then the Common name and Scientific name (also listed in that link above).

    Then below is the lined column, so the the Date you are making the return, 01/4/2018 example

    Acquisitions is if you bred, imported or purchased/gift, so you put the number in the correct column. If you haven't purchased any new snakes, simply leave it blank, or put 0.

    Escapes, Deaths, Disposals, same as above, if you sold a snake, put 1 in the column, if one died, 1 etc. So if you purchased/sold a snake, you need the name and address of the seller/buyer, and their Licence no.

    Import/export no.
    If you imported or exported the snake, you need to put in that permit number, otherwise leave blank etc....

    TOTAL - live/dead...so put in 1 live, 0 dead for example. That should add up to the total of acquisitons/sales/deaths/etc.

    If you have acquired/bred/sold more than one snake in the time period do another separate page with all the relevant info.

    This info was from my last w/l return form in 2014, so maybe it's changed since then, but this is the basics anyway.

    We don't have any return forms Murph. This is all taken care of with movement advice forms. Just make sure your book is up to date with purchases and deaths etc.

    Oh really sweet ... the rules are all over the shop.. and makes it hard.. when I lived in the territory it was so easy to get a licence and sorry the paper trail when I came back to QLD it was all so confusing (at the time) plus working away in the mines I never really chased it.. as for my log book it's bag on ..

    And we dont have diff levels of licencing/ restrictions do we? Cause when I bought my 2 GTP I rang them and asked they told me nope just make sure to get the movement advice sorted that's it .. one country one set of rules it shouldn't be THIS confusing or hard..

    PS I wanna get my venomous snake licence ..

    No there are no different levels. It only changes when you want venomous or crocodilian species.
    We definitely need a national system, as long as the Qld system is the one implemented, most others are way too restrictive on non-venomous and ridiculously un-restrictive for venomous.
