Licences & Permits

It is illegal to remove reptiles from the wild in Australia, doing so may result in a Hefty Fine and Imprisonment!

Unfortunately we are prohibited by law from Importing Reptiles from and Exporting Reptiles to Overseas!

Hopefully regulations will change for the Import and Export of Australian Reptiles, if there are enough complaints made to Environment Australia, there could be some changes made. All complaints are to be made to Environment Australia by Email on All complaints are appreciated.

Australia's licensing laws to keep reptiles are different in each State and Territory. Import and Export Permits are available through National Parks and Wildlife in your State or Territory. For further Information please contact the National Parks and Wildlife Department in your State or Territory as per the details below.
