Does anyone know what the going price of ASF's are? Are they more expensive in the pet stores? I know that some of you fine folks raise your own but I was just wondering.

About $2 to $3 each is the going rate. Some people charge more some less.

just going by what I remember..... It is or was illegal for pet stores to sell them. Thats why you dont see zebra mice and othe small mamals from there any more. I dont remember why. But back a few year we got something in the mail from animal control/fish and game don't remember who but it said to stop selling them. And all the supplier at the time stop selling them.

Virginia has a law against selling African mammals as pets. Now, I think you can get a special permit to sell them as feeders but apparantly you are only allowed to sell the males. At least this is what I've heard. But I do know a few people here in Richmond that breed ASF rats. I'll have to ask them about it.

I went out to the Administrative Code of Virginia and looked this up. Under "4VAC15-30-40. Importation requirements, possession and sale of nonnative (exotic) animals." It is illegal to possess, import or sell without a permit "rodentia" native to Africa. I think this includes ASF's.

Here is the link: http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?000+reg+4VAC15-30-40

I wonder how difficult it is to get a permit?

Like the turtle law the only time I've seen this enforced is as a secondary offense when they are responding to another report.

After learning that ASFs may not be legal (but not enforced), I'd caution members about postings related to possession of ASFs on a public forum. Our government is not known for minding their own business. And, the enforcement may change in the future.
