Someone told me it has now become Illegal for Housing any poisonous animal in England even with a license?

Is this true?

Quite frankly they are talking out of there mate, there must be a few thousand animals kept between various keepers and breeders and to simply ban it would be impossible and force everyone underground and that really is not going to happen.

i have been told that if you get a
pet shop licences let you keep what you want with no regular vet inspections including dwa animals and it can be cheaper than a dwa licence but in long run it is anyway as dont need to pay for regular vet inspections so on can anyone confirm this or show me a site that will

I know people with PSL that have the same amount of inspections as the rest of us.

Do you have to be 18 to get a licence?

i personally think it should depend on maturity and experience. I think 30+ should be the age limit. sorry, don't want to offend anyone but feel experience is essential for DWA licences. These are dangerous animals which can do alot of damage.

i agree with you mate i dont think age has got anything to do with it. as long as people are careful, take the necessary precautions and understand the capabilities of the animal they should be fine.
i mean take steve irwins little girl shes probably more experienced than most exotic keepers in the country,and she hasnt even hit her teens.
