::I am new to the great GTP,I have succesfully bred/kept womas and blackheaded pythons as well as bredli and jungle carpets but have not owned a GTP as of yet.As I am in australia the prices of these beautiful creatures are in excess of $5000 each.I wanted to ask a few question (I have read alot on them and studied as much as possible).Is an automated misting system good for these snakes? Also if ever bred (a goal in the future I hope) Is it best to maternal incubate or arteficially incubate? Finally does anybody know how one could go about legalising importation from other countries? (such as a private zoo licence or otherwise) If anyone else in this forum is from australia please contact me with some advice on purchasing etc.
:This may be a dumb question but why not go up to Cape York penninsula and catch one??
Fines and possible imprisonment. Australian wildlife is strictly protected. I'm pretty sure, you have to have a permit to own any native wildlife there. There are animal agencies with special permits, that are allowed to remove reptiles from public and private properties. This is all that I've read anyway. I would love to have some Cape Yorks, but I doubt we'll ever see them in the states unless they are smuggled.
