Curious. Why you asking how common and, more importantly, why are you asking how much they are worth?

Just making sure addonexis. I don't know if I have seen any. Have you tried the junkmail online? http://www.junkmail.co.za
Type in the english name on the search. If it asks for the date on the search then date it back 6 months. Might give you an idea. Junkmail seems to be down at the moment (or it is my slow connection lol!) so give it a about an hour then try.

Serpy - 4k to 6k? Ouch!

I highly doubt you'll see them in the junk mail. Yep thats the price, not too bad, i'm sure if you search a bit you can get them cheaper. I think I know the person who offered you the pair Wagners, he offered them to me too a while ago.

I'll stick to rat snakes. Easier to find and A LOT cheaper lol!

Got onto junkmail. Nothing there. Serpy knows his stuff!

Agreed. I am having to 'tighten my belt' for now. Next year going to talk to you about a few "extras" to add to my collection...

haha....... Thanks guys I thought they might cost more but its still ouch. But it’s a trade so it’s not that bad. Plus I want to do venomous guessing it’s a good way to get rid of my constrictors…
