    Hybrids still arent legal, theyre just trying to keep track of whats out there.

    Wish they released this list a week ago :(

    Well they must be legal to keep track of them.
    If keepers are admittedly open about keeping/breeding them on record without fear of fines or imprisonment, and the government officials supply the record keeping material for these Hybrid keepers then it must be legal.

    It says at the top:

    Some hybridised animals are recorded in this list. The Department does not support native animal keepers who breed between animals of different​
    species.

    But I cant actually find anything that says that it is illegal.

    I guess they realized they couldn't control it so they decided to put them on licence to avoid them all being placed on record under pure. Pretty sad affair anyway, but what can they do.

    As much as people like to say that hybrids are illegal in NSW without checking the facts, they are perfectly LEGAL, i don't agree with this but also don't like people filling the internet with BS..
    This is a quote from DEC who is a member on this site...

    In NSW as it currently stands it is an offence to cross breed native and domestic waterfowl. This does not go further than that. In QLD and VIC it is an offence to breed hybirds. While there is no NSW law or regulation prohibiting the breeding of hybirds, it is not encouraged and when it does occour (as some of the codes for animals in NSW show) it is recomended that the animals not be used for breeding. That is the limit of the NSW legislation at the moment.

    No offence (to the NSWer's and the DEC), but that is like the most dodgey-est listing I have ever seen! Missing a fair bit of stuff...like missing out the monitors completely, and it doesn't give a description for "Companion" type licence down the bottom with the rest, nor does it explain what an actual "companion" licence is properly anywhere else, unless I missed that part, and like someone else said, it is listed as ok on companion type licences for pure Antaresia (excl. perthensis), but not the (Antaresia) crosses and some others I think... I'm sure there were other things I picked out, but can't remember, looks like it was a very rushed job they did! Fair few what appear to be typo's for something that is suppose to be a legal type thing... Might just be me who thinks this though... ;)

    Hahaha Nice one btw Fay, jovial mood again? ;) lol I picked it up too lol. :lol:

    I found this to be interesting

    "If the animal species you want to keep isn’t listed, you generally cannot keep it, although the department might consider requests to keep
    unlisted species of reptile, bird or amphibian. If you are applying for a licence for an unlisted species, you will need to supply details of the species and​
    numbers you are proposing to keep, the legal availability of the species and its husbandry requirements in captivity."

    Isn't it nice of NPWS to raise this, just four days after the Frog and Reptile Show where there was a petition for Womas to go up to class 1.

    NPWS could have boosted their revenue if they had brought this up during the show and sold Class 1 licences on site (as a few other APS members have already commented on).

    But more importantly, they should have had a stall at the show to advise people on licence, the changes in the licencing, and scope of practice for keeping reptiles - husbandry, specialist vet practices.

    There were quite a few parents who had gotten licences in order to for their kids to have a reptile that were asking the breeders questions about basic husbandry and care.

    You can only keep ONE animal on a companion licence. So if you only want to keep one blue tongue etc you can get a cheaper licence.

    Imprisonment :shock: What is the standard sentence at the moment? I bet your cell mate would be worried when he found out what you were in for.

    re Womas

    Youll have to return your goannas to the DECC office at hurstville straight away or your house could be raided by the swatt team,they are determined to drink the blood of every man woman and child with an outstanding goanna.
