    We had a chat with NPWS at the expo and they never mentioned anything.

    The only thing as keepers we have to be worried of is minimum size enclosures eg 4ftx2fx2ft for each stimson's and this is going to be legally inforced.

    Monitors would just be a screw up by the npws by not putting them on.

    Yes i tend to think this is just a sweetener for the new legislation they are bringing out on housing requirements, plus sales in pet shops is probably not too far off either.

    I agree.....much more interesting, calmer, and funny at times than morelia...;)
    Much better for a first snake I think, size and temperament wise.....hopefully I should have a first clutch this season....great timing DECC...:)

    I wouldnt jump to conclusions just yet either....
    It could all still be a typo.....I hope not though.

    Why doesnt someone give them a call? Before 12.00pm though.

    Woma's were put on class 2 because they were rare in captivity and in the wild.

    It's not a typo, but the new enclosure sizes are in discussions now.

    LOLOLOLOL :D
    I didn't notice that!

    I suggest they replace that with a Chameleon, or perhaps a rattlesnake.

    Am I right in reading that you now need a class three to have RBB?

    I would think that npws will discuss this with leading herp keepers and people who are experts on reptile keeping in captivity.
    Looks like they have draft proposal from some animal liberating organisation.
    In my opinion, npws will look at this proposal and make up they mind after proper consultation.

    Just got back from Ballot collection. Species list is being removed for review. Womas are 100% Class 1 though. List was released before they could organise a media release.
