Licensing Information in South Australia
Licensing information is constantly changing. Therefore this is to be used as a guide only.
For basic species you do not need a permit to keep one individual, but to sell or otherwise dispose of that animal would require a Basic Keep and Sell Permit.
Basic species are those that are common in captivity and/or in their natural habitat and are fully protected. These species are usually easy to keep in captivity.
As of May 2011, a Keep and Sell Permit (Basic) cost $60 for 1 year and requires the holder of the permit to maintain a record book and submit a stock return to the DENR Fauna Permit Unit at the end of each financial year. For more information, including a Basic animals list, click here.
