Why It is Illegal To Keep Snakes In Singapore

The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA, which I sometimes refer to "Animals & Vegetables Authority" Haha!) explained why it is illegal for people living in Singapore to keep exotic wildlife such as snakes:


There is no mention of a fine. I guess the reasons given above are good enough to persuade us not to keep snakes as pets.

I have mentioned earlier that it is important to be able to identify snake species that occur naturally in Singapore, so that we can make better judgements when we encounter a snake. However, alien species escaped or released into the wild can complicate matters. Someone might mistake an exotic venomous snake for a similar-looking native non-venomous snake. Although it is unwise to handle snakes of any kind, I believe that people will still be taking chances (sometimes with goodwill). One unpleasant accident can cause the public to lose confidence in their own ability to identify snakes. This may prevent the "Ask questions first, kill later" spirit from spreading among the public.

if we take the reasons AVA has given arguing against the keeping of snakes as pets as apply it to all animals, we'd find there are precious little species allowed to keep.
i don't think a blanket ban should be the solution.

I have a snake. It is native though (a striped kukri). It was actually caught here by a friend. So what should I do? I didn't know it was illegal.

I have caught a kukri too!! It was soo tame and I wanted to keep it vv badly but figured there is no way of hiding it(I live in a university hostel by the way, they might evact me from hall!!) so i let it go soon after.. what a pity.. actually, I got bitten when I first handle it(I guess I made it stressed, but subsiquently it was sooo doctile that i let it rest on my arms while using msn) but I kept lobsters as pets too(they are legal, in case u are wondering) and honestly, a lobster's bite is hell lot more nasty that that of a striped kukri..

so if lobsters are allowed, maybe they should relax the blanket ban on snakes abit

Oh by the way, the kukri is caught in my campus as well. there are lots of snakes here, I saw plenty of road kills.. but the kukri was my first live sighting and I caught it and subsequently release it for the above post mentioned reasons..

I can understand the goverment wanting to keep exotic's out, but why can't natives be kept?
Sometimes I think that the goverment would be better off making it legal and licensing people, at least that way they know what species are being kept, rather than fred down the road keeping a pet snake hidden away with little guidance on how to securely house and maintain it.

I also believe that only captive bred snakes should be kept ultimately, however you might have to allow legal collection and registration until enough number were being bred in captivity.

The AVA should provide people with proper facilities to keep snakes a way for them to do so rather than have multiple exotic busts and have people who illegally keep them without proper care! Dont you think so?
