    Not necessarily a "turtle" question but do all animals imported via plane go through quarantine? Or is it like an "RBT" where only some will be checked? Thanks!

    Hi Christine,

    This is only a quarantine procedure done in WA and @Steve Applin will need to answer this question for you as most of us are from the eastern states.

    No they just open up the container the reptile is shipped in and check that what is in the box matches what is on your paperwork. Then charge you $60 for the privilege. Then you go to DPAW in Bently (probably 10k's from the airport) to repeat the procedure.
