Re: golith birdeaters

Is T. blondi called an Goliath birdeater? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goliath_birdeater They are rare enough that countries like Germany are still importing WC animals.

I wonder, if it is possible to farm alligators in Sout...

Permits are an issue and I'd like to know, which are required let's say in the Transvaal area. As for facilities I see: - Heat house - ...
