I am thinking about it, but I'd really rather purchase my first animal from someone I know has at least a few years' worth of breeding experience behind them.
I know Tokays have different husbandry, and I have absolutely no intention of purchasing an animal I don't know how to care for.
The shops don't breed them themselves, they use private breeders. I, for instance, have recently sold 12 baby corns to a pet shop. They never asked me any questions, just agreed to buy them. They were actually quite shocked when I turned up with feeding/shedding records for all of them. All you are doing by buying from the classifieds is cutting out the expensive middle man.
