Please read link from SAreptiles (post by Bushviper):

www.sareptiles.co.za/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=28650

For those that can't open the link, it basically says you'll need a permit to keep/breed/sell etc. alien tarantulas and if you don't have a permit, they'll FUBAR you.

I think we all knew this was coming.

I might move to KZN soon :unsure: :(

I doubt they'll get it sanctioned. if they do, they'll have to loosen their grip on the permits. cos if you need a permit for locals and foreign, then you might as well get a permit requirement for dogs too.

h. gigas (4-5cm)
b. albopilosum (3-4cm)
l. parahybana (3-4cm)
P. irminia (8-9cm)


Scorps:
p. transvaalicus (3cm)
2 emperors (5cm each)

will update after the expo :-P

Doesn't affect tarantulas, so I am not worried.

No person may, without a permit-
(a) import;
(b) transport;
(c) keep;
(d) breed; or
(e) trade in,
a specimen of an alien animal except an alien animal listed as a pet species in Schedule 3

The list of pet species are:
...a. Alien tarantulas and alien scorpions excluding those listed in terms of section 67(1) of the National Environmental Management: Biodiversity Act, 2004
Reptiles

I am hoping that I read it correctly.
I have asked Ian for confirmation on the wording as well.
