Re: Help with Hemidactylus mabouia

As harsh as it may sound, euthanize it humanely. Besides it being listed in invasive alien regulations and is of no conservation/ ecological significance in South Africa (apart from being snake food) the poor thing must be suffering, so ja, end its misery.

Re: Getting Leo's Legal in Cape Town

No worries but thanks, Slangkop! Apology appreciated and accepted. I can empathise and understand where you are coming from as we’re all pretty much in the same boat. It’s incredibly annoying with the goal posts constantly being shifted regarding which species must be listed and are safe and those t...

Re: Getting Leo's Legal in Cape Town

I am not looking for an argument or a debate. I am merely passing on what I know. I’m neither a breeder nor a seller of reptiles but I have h...

Re: KZN permits

You're correct in saying that, predator678. As it stands, permits for gaboon adders and southern African pythons are required to keep them in captivity. The only other time permits will be required is for import/exporting in to and out KZN. I've taken out some of the relevant stuff for reptiles in K...
