    Define, better?

    You can keep carpet pythons in USA, however you cannot keep exotics here in AUS.

    Maybe define your question;

    Do you mean the broad keeping ability the US have or do you mean there indigenous reptiles?

    As mentioned in snakebytes, those geckos are not native to the US.

    In USA you can have ALL snakes, so USA definitely. You can get BALL PYTHONS!!! I cry myself to sleep thinking about Ball Pythons... haha jks... but I still want one. Plus, US snakes are cheap as. $30 for a Ball Python, and
    just $350 for a GTP!!!!!

    In the US you can keep virtually any species you want, inclusive of Australian reptiles that we can't have on license (eg Pilbara Rock Monitor). So given that they can keep anything we can plus more, you would have to conclude that they can keep "better" reptiles.

    As much as I love our natives there are a few exotics I would jump at the chance to own.

    If it was based on indigenous species,Australia ranks #1 (from memory) for species diversity.

    Problem is the majority are mixed race so they are have almost nil value conservation wise.

    Dubai is just like America. I lived there, and a local pet store had SNOW LEOPARD CUBS!!!! And they're treated awfully :( You don't need a license or anything. In a pet store I saw an ADULT red tail boa in a tank about 50cm long.

    No you can't. You can't keep most Australian elapids.

    Hey W, I've seen a very wide variety of Aussie elapids in the US at expos etc, so if you want them you can have them (albeit at a higher price). Failing that, if you knew the right people in the US, there would be nothing stopping you from getting your hands on ANYTHING. Believe me.

    Easily it would be the US...

    Like mentioned... You can keep anything you want there, so whatever we have they have plus more.
