Default Varanus Tristis Tristis

Are there many breeders in europe/ UK working with this species? Something I may be interested in next year! I have seen lots of people who own/ work with Varanus Tristis Orientals but not Tristis Tristis.

I imported over a dozen tristis tristis about 7-8 years ago, not sure who has any of them now

If you are struggling for some try Brandon @ Canadian coldblood

They were great, very shy until I set them up in a cage higher up. cage was stuffed full of cork tubes and bark etc.

Pretty sure I had eggs but seem to remember only hatching one I think.

I'll see if I can find some photos.

Nice 1 Scott :) Look forward to seeing them and hopefully working with them in the future. How did you find importing animals from Canada? It's something I'm slightly nervous of doing and I expect it is costly.
