Default Hamm Show

Hi,

I'm seriously considering going to hamm this year for my Birthday, as I don't think I'll be going on holiday anywhere else and since this will be my first reptile show, I thought it'd be pretty interesting.


I would be considering a Cites 1 animals, (Madagascan tree boa)
likely 1-4 animals (I'd be lucky to find one or two)
Whether or not there will be any there at all is another matter of course.

So firstly, does anyone have any seats available?
Does anyone have any experience bringing Cites animals back from reptile shows from Europe?
And also, generally speaking what are peoples thoughts on the chances of me finding what I'm looking for?

Not new to the hobby of keeping reptiles, even thought my new account my suggest this. I kept herps in my 20s for some years. All kinds.

Let me know

Thanks
J

You have not actually asked a question!!

Are you asking whether it is a good idea to spend your birthday at the reptile show?

Or are you asking what are your chances of finding any Sanzinia at the show?

Until the UK actually leaves the EU there is no issue in bringing back any CITES species. Once in the EU there are no internal borders to cross. Just ensure that for Annex A species each specimen has a VALID A10. This doesn't just mean it has one. The animal must be microchipped, unless a vet has deemed it too small to be chipped. The certificate needs to have the chip number on it. Also there are two types of A10, specimen specified c and transaction specific. The former is the preferred one as it stays with the specimen. The latter, however, is only valid for one single transaction hence its name. So if the name of the seller is not the name on the A10 its not valid.
Buying an Annex A specimen without a valid certificate is an indictable offence, you will have the specimen/s seized and face prosecution.
As long as everything is in order then there are no issues.

A friend of mine has just produced a litter of Sanzinia here in the UK.


If you PM me your email address I can pass it onto her.
