Just to make one thing crystal clear, WLW's only involvement was that he was due to check the animals over and rehydrate for 24 hours before they were to be delivered. He has had nothing to do with the import itself.

I didn't think for a minute he would have.

Shame about the import.

Thank you very much for that Ian. Hes completely right. Someone mentioned in another one of his threads that i hadnt informed people either about things, this was because it wasnt my import and that i wasnt being informed alot of the time like his customers. I was simply there to offer my advice and experince on unpacking imports and acclimatizing them, which is what i do anyway as my own job.

I would just like to add that i do a a Chinese import every year but this year as Andrew was starting up this business of his own that i decided i would place my order at cost prices with him as it made no difference to me. So i ordered a large sum of reptiles for my business....the sum of which is now owed back to me and is larger than all of his customers put together.

I have been on the phone to alot of his customers yesterday talking them through this whole mess and explaining i wasnt importing these animals. As you can guess they are all disappointed. I shouldnt really have to be the one explaining this to people i dont no who i dont do business with, yet i find myself trying to help them out. For that reason ive offered the ones i no who brought from andrew 20% off on one of my future imports. Anyone else whos brought from andrew on THIS import and can prove it to me then you shall get a 20% discount.
I dont have to do this at all, however i really feel for his customers and just want to restore some faith in british importors....or is that french importors?

Talking

Zaocys nigromarginatus!

They're what started this all for me. I grew up in China and when I was about 9 (before I'd even thought about snakes), on a mountain trail walk, one of these beauties fell from a tree on to my head.
It scared my mum something fierce and she grabbed it and flung it into nearby bushes. She now has a snake phobia (who can blame her?), whereas it intrigued me. Needless to say she doesnt enjoy visiting.
I'd love to have one of these. Theyre beautiful and I owe my passion to them =)

Aye. I heard a couple of lucky ones did, I lost about £90. I'm usually so careful about this sort of thing, live and learn, don't trust anyone on this forum despite the involvement or support of anyone, rep means nothing.
