Hi all,
I'm moving into QLD shortly from NSW and I've been flicking through the QLD licensing page.
It looks like I could keep a Brown Tree Snake (mildly venomous) under a standard native animal keepers license. In NSW they are a class R2 reptile (either because they are venomous or because they are harder to care for) and require holding a R1 license for 2 years before you could get a R2 license.

Has anyone here had any other variations between states and keeping less standard or venomous snakes?

While I'm on the subject, does anyone know ANYONE who breeds and sells Brown Tree Snakes? Would be so much easier if you could catch and keep as they are out and about in force in southern QLD at the moment.
