i think it depends on your sitution...im 17 and living with my girlfreind, and we found a appartment that allows reptiles. im not saying i own a burm,retic or rock, the biggest thing i own is a surinam rtb. but what im saying is that i agree with how people should have to go though a test or something to get a "licence" but i thiink that as long as you are big enough to handle it safely, then you should be able to get a licence.(or for something like a burm, you have 2 people that are big enough to handle it.) and also a guarantee that you will be able to house and feed it properly.
for myself i am confident that i can care for and handle the small collection i have.
wow...sorry, once again ive voiced my opinion in the longest possible way.
