Hi All, Current information on obtaining a reptile licence state by state. Can others please add their respective state and / or any other valid info that may be a central point of reference... QLD Recreational Wildlife Licence: Online application for a QLD Recreational Wildlife Licence (online payment by credit card): https://www.derm.qld.gov.au/rwl/faces/jsp/login.jsp Keeping wildlife for recreational purposes General information http://www.ehp.qld.gov.au/licences-permits/plants-animals/recreational-use-animals/keeping_wildlife_for_recreational_purposes.html Wildlife permits and licenses http://www.qld.gov.au/environment/plants-animals/wildlife-permits/ Movement advice and how to transfer a reptile: https://www.ehp.qld.gov.au/licences...ldlife/moving_native_and_exotic_wildlife.html How soon can I keep birds/reptiles or amphibians after I have bought my licence online? You can keep the animal(s) identified on your licence as soon as you have received your licence. Note: Recreational Wildlife Licenses cannot be backdated. Your licence will list the ‘valid from’ date. Do I need to purchase a record book? A record book documents the movement, births and deaths of animals in your care. It contains multiple copies of the Wildlife Record Form which must be completed as a legal requirement. Each Wildlife Record Form can be used to record details about multiple animals, however only one species of animal can be recorded per page. Either 20 or 50 page record books are available for purchase. If you do not already have a usable record book, you must purchase one with your recreational wildlife licence and will be forwarded to your postal address. A DEHP officer may ask to see your record book to verify the origin of your animals.
