Blacklisted in Johannesburg. Meaning they are illegal to be kept.
As far as i know any way im sure someone else in the know will confirm this.

Yip. You are not allowed to keep any exotic chelonians. The fines are hectic too so dont chance it.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

I also never knew that until I set my heart on finding one. At least we don't have issues with other exotic pets.

If you keep a look out on Gumtree you will be shocked what you can buy! Very little of these animals are sold legally though!
