Hi, I am interested, however there is a big difference between 8 inches and 12 inches and your photographs do not clearly indicate an accurate length. Could you please post a clear picture from above of the toads with a tape measure next to them so I can see the snout to vent length. 8 inch toads are common but anything bigger than 10 inches is rare. I would like to know exactly what sizes they are please and what I would be paying for. A simple picture from above with a tape measure next to it showing an accurate snout to vent length would be appreciated. Please don't take umbridge at my request as I am genuinely interested in buying and for my own research purposes, particularly if you really do have foot long toads, and especially if they're for sale. Unfortunately many people make claims of big Toads but rarely show clear photographs to back it up.

I look forward to seeing the pictures.

Could you show me an above shot of your biggest one with a tape measure along side it so I can book up for the next shipment then please.

Thanks

I have £1,000 sitting on my desk in cash for a Surinam Cane Toad that is 12 inches (not 10 and a half or 11) snout to vent or more. So if you have one could you post a clear above shot of one with a tape measure showing the size and also let me know it's weight. This would be much appreciated. I understand you have got some large ones of your own so perhaps a shot of one of these showing it's size so that I know your supplier can actually get one that is 12 inches long. I would then be able to put my order in. But obviously if you're selling these bigger 12 inch ones for £95.00 anyway, you would jump at my offer 0f £1,000.

I absolutely can't wait for your reply and I am very excited.

I mean, if all these people are off to Hamm and Houten they should be able to bring plenty of healthy 12 inchers back, 12" mind not 11" or 10".

I expect they'll be knocking my door down when they get back and of course it'll push the price of these 12 inchers right up, so we all win.

Anyone else in the country who wants my offer is welcome to pm me by the way.

I'm waiting with baited breath.:2thumb:
