Fiji Iguanas! Komodo dragons also have a high return. Gila monsters retain their value for many years too. A breeding group of any of these would cost about the same as the average house but the returns are good.

Hey all.... I know its been a while and although iv been real quiet, I'v been about!!!

Dont start breeding any animal as a business!!!!......... Maybe if you start breeding something which grows into a business as your experrience grows!

Worry about the animals and there quality of life..... The cash might come leter!??!

If you could start breeding real dragons there would be instant profit in that. Otherwise the advice from Kristo is about the best.

Lol depends on what kind of lizzards, trying to sell tropical house geckoes in kzn is not very profitable...

Start small and simple, seeing that you have never kept a reptile, begin with a beardie and see where things go from there.
The way to success has no shortcuts.
