I have reported about 5 different ads today. Waiting for a response from RDU. They are normally pretty good about removing them.

Not hard to spot the dodgy ads.....

There's some lovely Goldfields shinglebacks up atm if anyone wants to pay for them and never have to feed them. Also has a rack for sale which sez its good for ball pythons. Better jump on it hey, a real bargain:)

And I keep saying that too; and then I'll see something that I just can't refuse. Going to look at some panoptes hatchlings tomorrow..... :rolleyes:
Thats so unfair.
Bloody victorian regulations.
I had a bit of a debate with a wildlife officer here. I said y can't i keep a perentie? He said y would u want a perentie there too big to keep and they shouldn't be on license. Fair enough but its ok that i keep a salt water croc yeh. U people don't make alot of sense in your licensing

I don't understand the differences between states. Here we can have perenties and lacies on specialist permit; panoptes on basic. In Victoria, you can't have panoptes at all, but you can have lacies.

Personally, I think all the states should align their licensing. Medium to large monitors should be on an advanced license, small on a basic. And I also think it necessary for keepers to hold a basic for a minimum 2 years prior to being able to upgrade to an advanced, just to make sure they've had some experience with reptiles before purchasing an animal with more advanced husbandry needs, or, one that is just bigger and more unpredictable.

It doesn't make sense.
We can't keep Rosenbergs either and yet i believe they inhabit Victoria. It does my head in

I agree all states should have the same rules,here in NSW you have to have owned a type of reptile you want to up grade to for 2 years ,for instance I had beardies (R1) for several years before I asked for an upgrade so I could get a Boyds (R2)

Exactly. My son has a gillens monitor,when he upgrades to an R2 this year he will qualify to keep a lacie.How is that adequate experience?

I understand if its based on care requirements but its not. Is it based on numbers in the wild ? Im unsure why we would be allowed to keep a salt water croc here in vic but not allowed to keep kingorum/ Bushi / glauteri or Rosenbergs. It doesn't make alot of sense

It seems that the scams have shifted from GTPs to Goldfield's Bobtails. Come to think of it, I'm seeing scam-like ads just about every other day now. I assume they're all from the same person?

Yeh he's put his phone number up now and the gtp"s and the bobtails have the same number. Maybe he's just loaded and lives all over the place
