Think of it this way; with the pair of fires you would get you can produce black-eyed leaucisctics, which go for more per snake than what you would pay for all of the snakes together. Yes, it's a good deal. You then also have het. pieds which would fetch amazing prices per baby, and you would cover your costs as soon as you start churning out babies. Mojave can produce blue-eyed leaucys which would also help to cover costs. I would definitely go for it; just remember that you also have to house those bad-boys and feed them.

Sound way too good to be true, recon your being taken for a ride there bud!
Be very carefull when it comes to balls. There have been many members who have been conned out of thousands of rands! If the source is reliable then take them now! go to the bank, make a loan & take them now! Buyer beware!!!

Hi, It seems the price could be correct for the snakes only though.

What about transport and quarintene costs? Permits? Import duties, etc.

If importing were easy and cheap...everyone would be doing it. But good luck!

Those prices are normal for the USA market

I'ts a good deal, but you can atleast double the price, of the animals and maybe add another R10k to have an idea of what your minimum costing will be, if not more..
It is not cheap to import, and the risk is huge, since you have no gaurantee on the animals arriving alive and in good health.. That is way not many people do it!

They do have a guarantee for healthy and live reptiles arriving, as well as 100% sexing of the animals.
And the guy that I will use is this one viewtopic.php?f=129&t=23625 so yeah I will probably jump in later on with other buyers, and that way try to lower the cost of the import.
