rhino iggys are quite pricey, sorry i dont know lol.
Oh...prolyl the komodo dragon actually, think if and when they do "go" they go for atleast 10k [possibly 5-10 times that]

I think it would be a close one between V. komodoensis (Komodo) and V. giganteus (perentie)

I know Komodoes have been offered in the UK for around the £50K mark and im sure if perenties ever make it to europe the price tag would be similar.

agreed, parenties would be around the same sort of league as a komodo im sure.

I dont think beaded lizards are as expensive...1200 or soemthing maybe, cant remember.

Beside the komodo which would be the most expensive once on the market though dont think it ever will be.

Although im on a waiting list for a blue morph iguana from the states and have been given a price around $6000 mark although would cost more to get it imported, certs, vet checks ect.

Although parrot wise hyacinth macaws handreared babys can go from £8000 plus each.
