Re: Bran as substrate?

I wouldn't suggest it. Bran needs next to no provocation here to start molding(I've tried it for various creatures).

Re: Permits?

Hi Lillypod, Did you contact the KZN head office, or did you contact the officer in charge of Umhlatuze? When I was making inquiries, they told me "Hi, Please discuss your intentions with your relevant District Conservation Officer. I have attached the list. We only issue permits once they have...

Yes. IT is Acontias plumbeus. It is very weird, but common in Richards Bay. They grow to a full 30cm.

Re: Native Cockroach

Hi Firefly, They are not Aptera fusca, I live in Richards Bay. I apologize for not mentioning my location, I should know better by now. I have had them identified by someone who has much experience with Blattodeans. They are a species of Pycnoscelus :D . Thanks for the assistance, though. JV Lillypo...

Re: Keeping these guys in captivity

Hi, I am the above mentioned person who raises Xenopus laevis(Platanna) tadpoles. It is legal to keep frogs in KZN, according to the permit office. And, according to the people who have been keeping Platannas for years, feeder fish are not a very good idea. Here is a link to a page with a lot of inf...

Feeder/pet roaches in SA

Hello Everybody,

How are you?

I am just starting to get into the hobby of keeping roaches. I have found one or two websites for people selling roaches in SA. But, not everyone who breeds roaches sell them. So, which species are available in South Africa.

Thank You,
Joh

Native Cockroach

Hi There, I am interested in keeping and breeding some of our native cockroaches. I found these beauties under some rocks and flowerpots, but have no idea what species they are. Can anyone help me out? I am quite certain that both forms are the same species. Thanks, Joh http://i1183.photobucket.com/...

Pachnoda sinuata is easy to get hold of, in South Africa. But, one requires an export permit to send the imagos/pupae overseas.Applying for the permit i...

Re: Flat Lizard

I forgot to mention the fact, that they mustn't be T.O.P.S listed. But, as I said, that's just how I understand it, as long as they're not T.O.P.S listed, or on the provincial list of animals that you are not allowed to keep. Also, they must be caught outside Game parks, and Nature reserves.

Re: Flat Lizard

I ask, because the KZN legislation states that any indigenous lizards, reptiles, and amphibians can be kept, bred and sold without permits as long as they don't cross provincial lines. That's how I understood it, at least.

Re: Local PMB bugs 'n stuff (pic heavy)

Hi. I just wanted to say that those crabs are juvenile and adult, African Freshwater Crabs, and they belong to the genus Potomonautes. Maybe Potomonautes warreni.
