Commonly kept snakes in Australia include Carpet Pythons and Children’s Pythons. These can be obtained from breeders and dealers, but will grow to become quite large. Carpet snakes are semi-arboreal, so cages need to be tall to allow for branches that these snakes like to lie on.
The Bearded Dragon (Pogona spp), a native of Australia, is now found worldwide as a popular pet. Anecdotal reports indicate that it is starting to surpass the Iguana as the preferred pet reptile in the United States. In Australia it is found widely distributed in the wild, although strict wildlife regulations mean that it is relatively uncommonly kept as a pet.
