    Hi Johnny, welcome to the forum. Your probably best phoning your local council’s animal licensing officer and discussing this directly with them, as they are responsible for licensing.

    Use the page below to find your local council website, and then navigate to their licensing section to find their contact details.

    Regards

    You don't need a license to privately breed from home, only if you're keeping and/or breeding dangerous animals which would require a DWAL license. Breeding reptiles is an expensive and highly competitive hobby. You're best bet is to look at what species you want to breed, do the research and maybe chat to someone who's already established as a breeder who can give tips and advice
