Default Coast to Coast Exotics Animal list 19th October 2006

Welcome to our new animal stock list. As always, there are additions and deletions as stock comes and goes. We usually manage to replace most species as they sell, but if you don’t see what you require keep popping back for a look.

Lots of nice animals in in the last few weeks, unfortunately things have been moving fast – and I haven’t get round to updating the list. This means lots of new stuff has come and gone! We have a small amount of Green Tree pythons left from our great deal from an Indonesian breeder – this deal means we can offer you captive bred beauties that are almost sub-adult for just a little more than many breeders ask for much younger animals! We have left only Sarongs, Biaks and a new locale Manokwari – we believe this is the first time these have been brought into the UK. Other than that we can offer you lost of new species of inverts and spiders, several new additions of amphibians and even some Colubrids such as Russian and Bairds Ratsnakes. All in all an interesting list.

These are the animals we had in stock in our shop in Darlington on the current date. Please remember we only sell animals (apart from inverts and spiders) to customers that can collect from the shop, we do not sell animals on the net, nor by any form of mail order. We care about the animals we sell and worry too much about their welfare to do this! Please visit this page often - we endeavour to update frequently. If you have a specific wants list contact us and we will do our best for you. Although this list is compiled with care and vast herpetological experience we accept that mistakes and errors can happen. We welcome any suggestions.

We would like to bring the following point to your attention:1. Colour morphs in Corn snakes has now got to a level, way beyond what could have been comprehended a few years ago. Presently there are nearly 200 colour / pattern variations (maybe more when combined!) and, as the majority are man-made they are very subjective. Some of the differences are also very small. What one person describes as a particular colour morph, another person will see something very different. Also, many Corn snake hatchlings look so radically different to when they are adult it is impossible to judge what they will look like later in life. For this reason we only describe the different morphs to the best of our ability and suggest that you firstly visit to make sure that you are buying what you require, and secondly keep in mind that when he/she grows up there may be some variation from the “perfect” example banded around on the various internet sites and in books.

Indeed, Serpenco are regarded as the best producer of Corn morphs in the world - and I gotta agree, they produce some startling quality.

Lol, 2 things of note, firstly why is the iguana on the list if you dont sell them? and secondly surely they are just as suitable as pets as a few other species on the list.?? maybe not i just feel i have missed something, seems so much negative feeling in the way of the keeping of green iguanas now...

I will have to check you out a later daye for the Uromastyx aegypticus i reckon.
Also as for the frillys do you have unrelated stock?

We took the decision many years ago to not sell Green Iguanas due to the amount of unwanted ones in the rescue centres. Many people in those days took them on as cute hatchlings to only find that they could not cope with the size and behaviour of them hence the bad publicity it caused the hobby. The huge vivarium at the shop with ours in (theres three actually!) was designed to educate people how big they grow and that they will need a room size vivarium once they grow up. Sorry if it offends anyone keeping Green Ig's, but its just an attempt to stop all those unwanted ones ending up in rescue centres.

By the way, thanks for all the nice comments and enquiries about the list through pm's - some forums it just generates a lot of negative comments when I place the list, so thanks everyone!
