    Hi, I am a teacher in a Pre-Prep room and the class displayed interest in snakes. We have been learning about various snake facts and the location they can be found. As we discussed how snakes shed their skins, the children were interested in viewing a real skin. Our problem is that I do not know where I can find one as I have been told that it is illegal to sell them in Australia.
    If by any chance you know where to locate skins or possibly have one that is no longer needed we would love to take it off your hands.
    Thank You for your time.


    Miss Karen and 2015 Pre-Prep class.

    You could always try your local snake breeder or specialty reptile store to see if they have any old sheds they would be willing to collect for you, since they usually throw them out anyway.

    Need to get permission to give out a shed. As they are a part of wildlife you need permission from dehp.

    Wow, what if you found one in the wild? Can you keep it? Also, is that for every state?

    No not out of the wild either. In regards to other states you would need to check with that authority
