A companion reptile keepers licence can also be obtained costing $45 for 5 years, however only one individual animal can be kept on this licence.

Can I buy and what is "Penny Turtle"?
A Penny Turtle does not exist, it was a term once used to describe baby turtles. Most species of Australian freshwater turtles will grow to approximately 30cm (shell size) or larger. Baby turtles grow very fast and as a minimum require a large 4ft (120cm) tank as adults.
Turtles that you will not find available to buy or for sale in Australia include Box Turtles, Red Eared Slider Turtles and Tortoises. In Australia it is against the law to keep exotic reptiles (non native to Australia). This is to ensure the protection and safety of our amazing native species of reptiles. Some other illegal exotics include: Chameleons, Iguanas, Corn snakes and Ball Pythons.
Please also note that we do not ship reptiles intestate. We are situated about 45 minutes drive from Sydney CBD in the Hills District
