I recall a pair being brought in 2 or 3 years back which supposedly sold for R20,000.

So I assume there are some in the country, bu they are rare.

Maybe BV or Mitton knows what happened to this pair.

I have seen some Diamond crossed Coastal carpet pythons and Diamond crossed with Jungle carpet pythons that were sold a number of years ago. Both of these have little value locally and I never saw any babies from them.

Pure Diamonds are still fairly expensive and I have never seen a pair for sale locally. They are also not so easy to breed as they need really cold winters.
