Never seen a Lace monitor for sale (although I have heard that there are some in Europe), Argus monitors are offered occasionally, just keep scanning the classifieds www.reptileclassifieds.co.uk

Don't know how it is in the UK, but on shows on the mainland most of them are WC or FB. But in Germany there are some breeders with CB.

A lot of Argus are now CB as Australia (where they come from) do not export animals. As for the laces, i think ive seen one ages ago and that went for around 3,000.

Argus as usually seen in the trade over there do not come from Australia - they're the New Guinea subspecies Varanus panoptes horni
