Don't know about it, but it's not impossible. Might just be a few snakes at a shopping mall or something.

Sorry typo there. They 'confirmed' that it is at the Rooftop (rosebank) market is what I meant to say

I think I know who this is. It is a guy that comes to some meetings and has now started a "snakepark on wheels" and moves around a lot apparently doing flea markets and the like.

I have not seen the setup so I cannot comment on it one way or another.

He does have a permit from Notcon to do this kind of work.

Anyone who wants to go see him can take photos and comment after first hand observation.

He was apparently at the Pretoria show recently.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

I met him at pta show. Had a QUICK chat to him. He wasn't really keen on answering my questions so I moved on. He charges to enter his vehicle. He has a little bus like those Mercedes sprinters or something that he converted into a mobile snake show. I just wanted to know what he had inside but he wouldn't tell me. He only charges R7 or so but I wasn't going to pay to see stuff you can see in a pet shop. And besides, I had already paid R8 at some other snake park's stall and they had all twelve of the deadly dozen an 16 of 25 most dangerous snakes in the world, including a juvenile Fer de lance. I don't know for sure that it is him who will be at the market though.
