    I am wanting to know what license you need to keep woma pythons and have eggs also I know they are threatened species so I was double checking the license criteria

    They're not threatened, you only need an R1.

    What does your lic conditions stipulate?

    If you have a license and you own one is it listed in your holdings?

    How did you get eggs since you only own one?

    Take your lic details down.

    You will most likely need to transfer the eggs from who ever gave them to you just like you would if you were purchasing a reptile from a licensed breeder.

    Contact national parks in Qld, explain what is happening and they will advise you on license requirments amd what you need to do.

    Woma's are considered a restricted species in QLD (same as GTP), as suche you're only allowed a maximum of two on a normal recreational license. To keep more than two your license must be amended for keeping restricted non venomous reptiles.

    Not sure if eggs count towards you maximum limit of two, which is why I advise contacting national parks.

    As noted above remove those photos of your license from this post as well. You don't want anyone who visits this site to be able to obtain your address and license details. Reptiles are regularly stolen and you've just advertised where you live. Not to mention the potential for people to pretend to be you.

    Cheers, Cameron
