Germany would be your best bet?

True, but you will probably be limited in colour choice?

Apologies if this is wrong, but you are a very very new member. You are aware I take it that you will need a DWAL to keep these?

Honestly, if you have to ask this question on a forum, you clearly aren't ready to keep them...

That isn't some cheap "No True Scotsman" fallacy, it's simply a fact that those who are ready, know where to find animals. Or at least, they have the contacts...

I notice you dodged Ian's question.

If you're contemplating keeping without a licence, just be aware that local authorities monitor RFUK and other forums/Facebook groups.

I know of three people who have been raided in the last 10 years by their activity on social media.

If it's really worth a £5,000 fine and a possible animal keeping ban, go ahead. If it's not...

To be fair to him, he does not state whether he has a license or even if his part of the U.K requires one..

As to any link between trying to find a specimen closer to home and the ability to handle it,I cannot see.

You need a licence anywhere in the UK to keep DWAA Schedule 1 species.
