I do, but unfortunately, the price of the many horneds is not cheap. This guy captive breeds every year, but he gets 500 euro overseas for them, so as for buying locally, he will charge big time.

Yip that is the problem. You only want legal captive bred ones and those can all be legally sent overseas for big bucks.

I expect there will be some Horned adders (B. caudalis) because I saw someone the other day with about 18 pairs from 3 different localities and they were all legal. Even if they only breed half of them there should be a whole bunch available at the end of the year.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Well shamroth, it depends if your prepared to pay the price or not as i know a breeder in Durban, but whether you have to wait for next clutch or whether he still has, i don't know, but he isn't cheap, but he is quality!
