Fantastic. I'm jealous. Awesome animals. I think in Canada it is prohibited to own a croc unless you have a special permit. The same, I believe goes with the large pythons, like the Burmese and the Rock. I do know they're restricted animals.

In my province, the largest animal you can own without a hassle is the common Boa Constrictor.

Yeah to have a croc you have to have a DWA (Dangerous Wild Animal) licence but there pretty easy to get..But things like burmese,anaconda's,boa's ect dont need no licence and anyone can own 1.

The only thing u need a DWA licencefor in theU.Kis crocadilians and venomous everything else dont need a licence and can buy from pretty much everywhere.

I contacted our Fish and Wildlife agency here, they told me that large LARGE snakes (Rocks, Burmese, etc...) are restricted. However, it's not illegal to own one. I don't know the requirements because people still sell them freely.

They get too large for me. My Boa is a good size and that's enough for me. Large snakes can be alot of work.

Yeah i agree with you big snakes can be hard to handle as you have to have a few ppl about when handeling large boids,

I always make sure i have friends over when getting my Burmese out,better to be safe than sorry!!:-)

A guy in the city here owns a 15 foot Burmese. Feeds the thing small pigs.

I know the temperment of a Burmese, especially the females, and you know, it could kill a man easily. There should be limits on what one can own.

Like I said, I'll stick to a Boa. Atleast they're a nice calm snake... if they're cage raised!

I'm just impressed with the croc photos -- this guy (dangerous or not) will give you some fantastic shots for years to come, I think. Plus, these shots are particularly good-- nice sharpness and detail.
