A Specialist Permit is required to keep and sell animals listed as a specialist species.
Specialist species are those animals which are not generally kept in captivity, animals considered to be of high status as a result of illegal trading or demand from trade (eg black cockatoos), animals which require special feeding or housing (eg koalas or wombats), animals which are endangered in their natural environment (eg golden shouldered parrot) or animals which require special expertise for handling and security (eg front fanged venomous snakes).
The sale of animals listed as specialist is restricted to such animals that have been bred by the permit holder or held for a period of not less than six months. If you wish to trade (buying and selling) in specialist animals, you will require a Specialist Fauna Dealer's Permit.
If you only want to keep rescued animals contact the agency direct.
