oh yeah i think i emailed the guy about that, unfortunately for me i don't really have all that money, i should have mentioned that i want a baby one to begin with because whilst that one grows i can get the money for a larger viv x

its a very nice monitor though

have you got a local reptile shop. if they don't have any in i'm sure they can order you one.

i know, i got to go to college for a lesson first before i pick it up and i bet i will be too excited to concentrate. definately my fave species of lizard though my cham isnt far behind.

Im most worried about being given a sickly bosc cuz i used to work in a pet shop and the boscs they got in where always sickly and died and it was such a shame. More nervous about this bosc, if it does come as a bosc and not a black throat, because i never got don as a little baby so this is new to me!

dont believe don was CB either, i think he was CF. not had much problems with him though, all it really takes with them is a confident hand :D

ahh, i didnt ask the guy in the shop when i was in there i was just having a look around, i'll probably go in again soon and ask him if the bosc is captive bred, ill also check out the size etc

would be good if anyone hears of a baby batch out, or breeder, if they could let me know, ill keep my eyes open

thanks a bunch :D

you don't really get any CB, mainly CF

the problem is that not many survive from the batches of eggs so they are rarer to find CB. CF arent that bad but avoid WC at all costs unless u can have its health checked and its calm and handleable. look for scars and bites on the bosc, usually a stark sign of WC

if they dont have any left, chances are that they can order more off their supplier.
