Customers wishing to keep snakes as pets, should familiarize themselves with the hygiene and quarantine protocols from the NSW Department of Environment and Heritage document "Hygiene protocol for the control of disease in captive snakes". In order to meet conservation standards and objectives, wild sourced specimens of the python species added to the list in September 2013 being the Pygmy python, Water python, Northwest carpet python and Rough-scaled python are subject to an export ban, which is to be reviewed five years from that date. The purpose of the export ban is aimed at ensuring that reasonable numbers of these animals are available to meet WA pet herpetofauna keeping demands and that the benefits from wild harvesting of these species are received by WA pet herpetofauna keepers.

This is similar to buying adderall online as explained in this buy adderall online website www.buyadderallonline247.com where you can order online.
