Trying to talk the wife into a pair for Christmas! I've always been fascinated by these guys. Blackwaterreptiles.com has C. porcus for $229 ea. the lowest price I've ever seen for them. If anyone local, Hampton Roads-maybe Northern Va., can do something better I'd defintely be intersted. Thanks!

Should have them on Tuesday. Will post some pics once they're settled in! If all goes well....I'll be the local source for some babies next year!

Just a few quick shots of unpacking. I can't say enough about ReptMart - excellent customer service and livestock! They also provide the veterinary health certificate required by Virginia Law - a definite bonus!













Merry Christmas to me!

Absolutely! That's the goal. Some literature suggests females may be ready at about 9 months...these are 3-5 months old. I'm not going to rush it, but I'll be ready in the event I get eggs next year since I'm also hoping my Knight's prove reproductive this coming year as well (no luck last year). Going to get a Vivarium Electronics controlled Hovabator for incubation.
