Nope JP the price on the last female went down to R7000.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

I have heard there was an alright ban on exporting them from USA. This is to protect their skin business. Is this true and where can I find out more.

I want to import them for my park plus they are like $25ea.

I see some were bred out here. Really wanted a pair.

It wouldn't be the reptile business if everyone that handled the animal along the way did not attempt to make a buck or two.

Supply and demand Delarey.

If it takes me three hours of driving to collect the animal, plus permits plus transport to the recipient then R1000 doesnt amount to much does it?

Besides the original selling price was R8000.00
