    princess parrot - do you keep your shinglebacks inside in an indoor enclosure or in an outdoor pit?
    Also great collection - Jeweled geckoes aren't that common in the pet trade and would be an awesome addition - Thanks

    Herpo - Cheers for the replay, however I am having some trouble accessing your photo

    Cameron - Sounds good I really like your collection are death adders that common - do you need a higher category licence or permit to keep them and if possible I would love to see a photo of your Cunningham and Pinktounges

    Thanks for the replies overall, and keep them coming
    Cheers
    Brando

    Death adder species are some of the more commonly kept elapid species. Pretty easy to find them for sale. It varies from state to state but all require a higher category license to keep elapid species.
    Here is an old photo of one of my pink tongues.

    My computers stuffing up so I can not be bothered to try and upload any new images.
    If this link works it will have more of my old pictures on it for you including the cunningham http://s1213.photobucket.com/

    Cheers Cameron

    They are currently inside but I'm starting to consider moving them outside since I am planning on building an enclosure outside for my blue tongue and water dragons(they're currently babies) and they have gotten so big!


    with keeping the deadly venomous snakes I know you need a class 5 license in nsw not sure about other states though and I know death adders are actually fairly common and easy to get hold of. I think pilbara pythons and southern cross reptiles use to sell them, not sure if they still do or not though.
    I was thinking of getting one in the future once but I'm not to sure...

    In NSW death adders are class 4 along with mulgas and a few other highly venomous snake class 5 is reserved for the truely deadly taipans eastern, browns, and the ever so aggressive rough scale.
    Its not as simple but in NSW you are required to hold each lic after your basic for a year before you can upgrade.

    Anyway.
    Olive python
    Water python
    Murray darling
    Albino darwin
    Coastal pythons
    And a few others :)

    Cheers Jacob

    I'd love one of them. They would probably have to be my favourite gecko

    Hey manimal, up in Lobethal? He's doing rad, still haven't found him a girlfriend though. Had an incident a few months ago that I posted a bit about after, search 'painty Mcbeardface'... He is super photogenic too

    There's some for sale right now on Reptiles Down Under. Just search 'elderi'.

    Not sure they're still available though.
