Wait! I misread the lizard tag and assumed you were talking about your tort.
The process for a lizard permit is the same as for a tort permit, as far as I remember. They may provide a list for restricted species on the relative Nature Conservation website.
I hope I didn't scare you off with the...
Hi @SoupHasCookied, to get a permit in South Africa, you'll have to go through the Nature Conservation of your province, through them you get a permit from the permit office.
From what province are you from?
If you are from Gauteng, these links should help
Here's more info...
Yeah, there's really no way to describe the fear you feel when you see it. We already knew that fires easily happen here, but still. The fires' smoke started about the size of a campfire, but within two minutes it was the size of the image above. What didn't help was that the previous day was...
Well, everything's fine now
A fire erupted after a neighbouring farmers' generator exploded. About a dozen farmers showed up and started plowing and clearing the ground infront of the fire. The fire brigade quickly came and started to survey the area with their planes and helicopters, and later...
Today we saw this little fella crossing the road on our water haul
It's got a really round shell, much rounder than some of the other torts we've seen. We're here for the Christmas period, if I'm not back on by then, Geseënde Kersfees to you all!
Thanks! Yes, we're surrounded by miles of fynbos
The nearest town is a few kilometres away. So the house has solar panels and we draw water from a borehole.
I'm sure Mary K would've loved the scenery here, and she might've enjoyed seeing her distant cousins, that's a beautiful photo of her!
Today in Stilbaai I saw this
It's always a good day when you see wild torts! It's a bit difficult to see, but in the top left is a tort. The one to the right was larger and "chasing" the other one. It could be that time of year, or he was chasing the other tort out of his territory.
When he saw...
We have a yesterday today and tomorrow that sprang up in our garden. This year it's blooming profusely. The young stinkhout leaves above show just how nicely Spring is progressing here in SA
Enjoy the rest of your day!
Apparently people started leaving marmalade sandwiches and stuffed Paddington bears as a tribute to the queen, but since then the royal family has asked that people stop, most likely because the sandwiches being left out is food waste and it mifs/rots easily
Paddington bears account also...
She used it to signal her servants. If someone was talking too long with her or about something she disliked, she would switch it to the opposite hand to get out of a conversation. After the signal was given her servants would fetch her to let her know she should "attend" to something else. I...
She wasn't the most liked person around the world, but you have to give that she changed the world regardless, and that any death is sad.
I hope I don't sound disrespectful, but I can't help but wonder what this means for the monarchy and for a Scotland that wants to leave. So all eyes are now...
Thanks @Lyn W! University starts next year somewhere in February, but the reason I've been so quite is that I was in Ireland for a few weeks😃
Both torts are doing excellent, Zvezda is growing a lot with the break of Spring
Sunny is fully healed thanks to all the help you guys provided. He's also...
Well... I find it incredibly ironic that on the day I finally post about my torts constipation... he let rip a gargantuan poop, in his enclosure, the first time I've ever seen him do it
Not for the faint of heart
Thanks for all the suggestions, really appreciate it!
