Nobody anymore mate. The late Luke Yeomans was the only one.

In a different thread someone mentioned you can get them in Europe from 90euros.

Purely out of interest
And I ask this as someone who does not have - and does not want - a DWAL

How would getting any venomous snake over from Europe work?
Does your DWA Licence list the species you keep? Numbers of each?
Or is it just a licence that says: snakes YES, crocs NO
Do you need to add a new species before you buy it, or shortly after?
Do you then declare this new snake at Dover port and hand over your DWAL?
Or do you declare it when you are back at home?

And what happens if your 3rd or 7th DWAL annual inspection is a fail?
Do you get a list of things to change by a certain time and then a re-inspection?

Purchase the the animal from abroad, declare it at customs and pay the relevant tax
Does your DWA Licence list the species you keep? Numbers of each?
Yes, you have to list the species, sex and quantity to be kept
Or is it just a licence that says: snakes YES, crocs NO
The license is species/sub-species specific.Once you have a DWA a seller in the UK will usually accept this even if the species is not on your license. Not sure how it works if you had a license for Boomslang and then got a tiger? Yes I have seen tigers for sale before
Do you need to add a new species before you buy it, or shortly after?
You have I think 28 days from possession of the animal until you have to notify your local authority
Do you then declare this new snake at Dover port and hand over your DWAL?
Customs only really care about two things.Does the animal fall within any category that its movement is restricted i.e. CITIES. And have you paid the relevant import duty. You do not need a DWA to transport
Or do you declare it when you are back at home?
I think this is 28 days

And what happens if your 3rd or 7th DWAL annual inspection is a fail?

It works the same way as if you're caught with animals without a license. You will have a list of things that need to be done and a timescale to complete them. The only change to this may be if there is a risk to either public health or the animals
Shellsfeathers&fur and dcap like this.

you can buy DWA and add it to the DWAL but there is normally an a fee and also my local authority would probably come out to make sure that i have an adequate size enclosure to house the animal.
