    hey everyone just wondering what people from other states can keep on there permits!
    just an interesting subject I think that the NT has the most flexable permits to keep reptiles and other animals here is what can keep with and with out a permit:

    (P.S. Just showing the important bits and theres not much we can't own.)

    these are the reptiles that you can keep in the nt on my permit:

    COMMON NT INDIGENOUS SPECIES ALLOUND
    REPTILES

    Black Headed Pythons
    Black - spotted Ridge - tail Monitor
    Brown Tree Snake
    Carpet Python
    Centralian Carpet Python (Bredli)
    Freckled Tree Monitor
    Freshwater Crocodile
    Smooth Knob - tailed Gecko
    Lined Earless dragon
    Major Skink
    Military Dragon
    North western Bearded Dragon
    Pygmy Rock Monitor
    Olive Python
    Saltwater Crocodile (esturine)
    Sand Goanna
    Smooth - flanked Gecko
    Spiny - tailed Gecko
    Stoke's Egernia
    Thick tailed Gecko
    Water python
    Woma python
    Stimson's python

    PLUS ALL THE MEMMALS AND BIRDS ECT. (I won't go into that too many )

    I can keep these ones as well
    WILDLIFE WHICH MAY BE KEPT WITH OUT A PERMIT

    I'll just tell you the reptiles.

    REPTILES

    Centralian blue-tonged Lizard
    Central Netted Dragon
    Centra Bearded Dragon

    diamond pythons
    bloched blue - tonged lizards
    common bearded dragons
    eastern water dragons
    shinglebacks
    lace monitors (Which I don't understand - if we cant have them then why do the petshops sell them???)
    western netted dragons
    westerb blue - tongued lizards

    and thats not including certain birds

    Jody, there are many snakes and lizards that you can keep that aren't on the list. I've had - and have several that are not on your list. I must admit the NT is in my opinion the best for keeping reptiles (and everything is free). Parks and Wildlife are very helpful and efficient...:)

    Blue tongue, Just coming back to QLD from 3 years in the NT. The species that don't require a licence to keep, you still require a receipt of sale be it from a pet store or licenced breeder to prove to NT parks that it wasn't just taken from the wild. Plus the species on that list are so profilic up there it's not funny.

    Where a children's to buy in the NT you could get for under $100. People down south pay up to $250, go figure. The NT is defineatley a special place when it comes to reptiles and i loved the time i spent up there. It's good to see such a healthy wild population of species. If you get the chance to experience the NT lifestyle jump at it, it's one truly remarkable experience and NT people are just the best.

    oh thanx Yommy, I've lived up here for the last 2.5 years and love it here not looking forward to the time when we are to leave. the only thing is we want to buy a house and we just can't afford it if we stay up here which is unfortunit so if anyone else can share some light on what they can keep in other states is very welcome in this forum.

    cheers Jody

    Pythons rule

    You can have diamonds in the NT though they need to be kept on a 'prohibited entrants permit' as they don't naturally occur there. The only draw back are that they need to be kept in aircon allyear round as the are a cool climate python and mine were hard to cool down to try and breed, so if you don't have a/c don't bother with them up there.

    Bloody Hell Wood_nymph lol the NSW is very spesific arn't they, with NT they just class any python that has carpet at the end of it as a coastal carpet nothing more they just like the easy way around everything lol

    but still not bad I think, at least here we don't have to pay for our licences or permits.
    cheers for your tribute into this thread

    cheers jody

    I believe the only types you can't bring into the NT are some venomous that require tiger snake antivenom such as tigers obviously and paleheaded etc as they don't have a reason to stock that antivenom as there is no naturally occurring vens there that need that type. Though the NT is difineatley gods country, miss it heaps.

    if i got the chance with work i'd jump at it. Though being defence i've got 6 years back in qld. Loved Tindal/Katherine. I'd live in Darwin but absolutely fell in love with Alice springs. Though they have more lizards then snakes down south. Can't beat t uluru & the woma's, plus those thorny devil are truly amazing in the flesh and if you want to see what i believe would be the BIGGEST king brown snake in captivity that thing at the desert park is something else. It's makes standard kingies look like worms and the FINKE desert race. everyone needs to go to that at least once in your life time :) Good times all round.
    Never just know your luck in a big city :)
