I've bought stuff from Jerry Cole before, I see that he is no longer a registered user on Ebay??? What a pity, he had the best range.

I wonder why he gave it up... :?

Ebay and B.J. Herp

Hi people,

Just thought i would drop some responses to the thread that is going on about us.

Firstly we have been suspended form e-bay for a period of 30 days, this was due to us pushing our luck with regards the feedback, we were advertising our domain name in the feedback. To help promote our website.

We also were getting very frustrated with e-bay constantly hiking their fees, for which they provide nothing in the way of service.

Also with regards the pricing of some of the "higher" end livestock, this is done so you don't buy them, as we want to keep these animals for future breeding stock.

We put them on the website just to show the genetic possibilitys and patterns that was present within the clutch.

The snakes are all UK captive bred here on site, most "pet shops" as fazer600sy mentions are suppliers that have no care or respect for the animals that they sell. They simply buy up anything that they can and sell as quick as possible with no respect for the animal or customer.

And many thanks to "mike mc" who correctly understands how we work, our reptiles are QUALITY not QUANTITY like other suppliers.

We work hard to produce some of the best UK Captive Bred species, and we can say our customers rarly have problems with our animals. Not something you can say about the local "snake shop".

Hope all is well to all herpers and check out our website if you need products.

Best regards for a Fangtastic 2007.

P.s have you seen our Caiman as yet??

check them out

Regards

Jerry Cole

Smallest alligator species bred

A type of alligator has been bred along the Dorset coast for the first time in 30 million years, a breeder has said.

Two Cuvier's Dwarf Caiman babies, measuring 10in (25cm) long, are the first of nine to hatch at breeders BJ Herp Supplies in Dorchester.


Adult Cuvier's Dwarf Caimans feed on rodents

The reptiles, which are normally found in the Amazon, are being fed goldfish and insects to help them grow to their full size of 59in (1.5m) long.

The breeders think they are the first of the species to be bred in the UK.

Jerry Cole, reptile expert, said: "Fossil records indicate it's about 30 million years since they were last breeding along the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, give or take a few million years.

"The babies are miniature versions of the adults, able to do everything from the moment they hatch. They could give you quite a nasty nip."

Mr Cole, who has one male and two female Cuvier's Dwarf Caimans, plans to keep a couple of the babies - the rest will go to zoos and private collectors.


Paleosuchus palpebrosus is the Latin name for the species

The Cuvier's Dwarf Caiman, which is native to South America, is the smallest species of the alligator family.


Congratulations Jerry!!!!!

I've bought stuff off you off eBay too! I wondered why you'd gone. I never realised you were Dorset based? How far is Dorchester from, Wareham? My partners grandparents live there nd were dorset based. I'd love to come and have a look at those Figis of yours! :p

Were not far from Wareham but you would need a car to get to us.

Please note being a working breeders time is constantly running away from us, so please if you do wish to visit make an appointment.

Details can be found of our address etc in the signature below.

Check out some of the images of the Fiji's hatching in our gallery area of the site.
