Its fantastic that this new list actually goes some way towards encompassing "Herpetofauna" and not JUST snakes! I know I'm not just speaking for myself when I say about bloody time!!!  ;)

Ultimately the list reflects what the majority of WAHS members wanted to keep, as WAHS/DPaW progress through the entire list in the submission, species that were not voted at the highest priority will be added. Unfortunately for those not wanting to keep snakes it will take a little more time, but then snakes were under represented on the original list so it evens itself out.

Spoke to Adrian the other day he told me knows nothing about what's going on, but did mention that Kevin Morrison is the person to ask.

Would common tree snakes include the blue phase of this?
Also in light of the coming additions, is there a third list being worked on to continue this awesome snowballing effect we've got going here?

Yes, all colour phases would be included as things stand, providing you can find someone to supply them.

As for more species, the WAHS committee is still working on this, although at some stage in the future (and this is just my opinion) there may need to be a new survey of member preferences given the list was developed at a point in time.  It's a hell of a lot of work, though, and the list still has a few species on it we suspect people will want.

Right now, though, most of the committee's time is being spent working on the upcoming Expo (26 July).  Work is also being put into developing care sheets for the recently-added species.

Be really nice if they would just let us keep everything...HA I know, dreaming...

Being colubrids the tree snakes are allowed to be imported aren't they?

I don't know why we couldn't import and keep things like GTPs, I mean if they get out there's zero likelihood they're going to survive anywhere in WA!

At the moment one of the main reason is the python import ban. Though historically DPaW have opposed reptiles that don't occur in WA. Like red belly black snakes etc.
BHP's would be just as exotic in Albany though. It's a weird perspective at times.

I expect the new species to be gazetted August, but the department is under resource pressure (There maybe a management moved to reduce the amount of leave accrued but they seems to be on holidays a lot). We have submitted to DPaW the next 6 animals to be assessed but I imagine that is still 12 months off

Crowned Snake (Drysdalia coronata)
Kimberley Rock Monitor (Varanus glauerti)
Broad-banded Sand Swimmer (Eremiascincus richardsoni)
Black-headed Scaly-foot (Pygopus nigriceps)
Giant Cave Gecko (Pseudothecadactylus cavaticus)
Western Pilbara Spiny-tailed Skink (Egernia cygnitos)

Crowned Snakes haven't been a Drysdalia for a long time, now Elapognathus. Egernia epsisolus would be a better option than cygnitos if you want a red depressa complex animal. Easier to access and a far prettier animal. E cygnitos are not as thick on the ground as epsisolus.
