Is a license needed to sell Leo's in SA

I'm wondering if you need a license to sell leopard geckos in South Africa

I'm looking into breeding leopard geckos but I want to start it off in the correct manner.
I know that you need a license to own a leopard gecko in the Western Cape. But I'm unsure if it is needed to have a license to sell leopard geckos.

Any responses will be appreciated .

I suggest contacting your local natcon offices to get an official response.

Things may have changed, but from what I recall years back, you, as the breeder only need licenses for your animals, and when they breed and you want to sell, you need to apply for a transport permit from your place to the buyer's place.

He/she then uses that transport permit to apply for their keeping permit.

Hope that helps.

Leos are a blacklisted species in the western cape, unfortunately we are not allowed to keep them, and Cape nature wont issue permits for them.
