Question Varanus Salvator, Where are they?

Hi

This isn't a classifieds post but ive been looking around for a young Salvator for MONTHSSSSSSS now and somebody posted on an advertisement i put up the other day saying that they had been banned from being imported into the UK!?

Does anyone know if this is true?

Now ideally i would of course be after a CB specimen but as i've been looking for so long if a CF came up i would have to take it!

Just wondering if anyone can fill me in on weather i'm following a dead end at the moment? Am desperate to get the critter!

Many thanks
sam

Not to my knowledge mat i am just buying one at the minute from a private seller. I would speak to Manchester pets and aquatics i know they have some nice monitors like timors and others I am sure they could get hold of a cb specimen for you.

Try TEF on rfuk, he was selling Sulfurs and het Sulfurs a while back
He's one of the few to produce them.

I didn't think the ban on imports was true but i will give manchester aquatics a call see what they have around. Im surprised how they have suddenly become so sought after! Had the chance to pick one up a year ago and kicking myself now!

With regard to the sulfurs, i saw them for sale. If i was looking to breed i would go for something a little more high end perhaps Cumingi etc but this is going to be purely a pet away from any breeding stock and therefore on price I'm looking for just a normal!

cheers
