Dendrobates are legal with a permit since 2016

I know that this has been much discussed, but at the previous SOS reptile expo, I spoke to the people from nature conservation , did you know that the list of species that may be kept was revised in July 2016, dendrobates where moved from category 1b to category 2, this means that they may be kept, bred and sold with the appropriate permit. Also the whole discussion on whether or not keeping of amphibians are legal, they are totally legal there are only 9 species that are totally prohibited and approx. 6 that are classified under the permits, with some only being banned in the Western Cape. Also you can't keep Iguanas in KZN and Mpumalanga without a permit anymore, and even if you do have a permit you are not allowed to do anything with them, they have been moved to category 1b
