just a lil thread about the more dangerous critters.

fro recent threads it seems that no animal is inaccessible, if you have the money, and licence...shops stock king cobras, and large vipers...and reticulas seems to be able to get any animal in the world :D

so my question. if i had the DWA, and unlimited money, is there ANY animals that i cannot obtain legally.

if i also, out of interest how much are the following (if they can be obtained)

nile croc
ghareal
hairy bush viper (i love them, sooo cute)
black widdow spider(usa)/ redback(aus)
an elephant
a black rhino
the brown recluse spider
the south ameican bushmaster
a leatherback turtle
a great white shark
sea krait
gorillia
coelocanth(sp)
and amber containg a mosquito with the blood of a trex (not for a breeding project, honest :lol: )

cheers for any opinions. and i don not intend to get most of thes animals, but with space, and money i kight be tempted with a couple.

the scary thing is, you don't need a DWA to get half of them either..

drive to hamm. buy a cobra. drive home again.

scary huh!

the bbc (or some TV set up) set a guy up a treat a few years back.. contacted him and asked him to bring them back some stuff, and meet them in a service station (which i think we've all done at some point - roadside swaps) sure that was hots too...

anyway, they had secret filming going on, and it all got broadcast as part of some "scoop" documentry..

i am sure its not ileagal to sell a hot snake to someone with no DWA, but it is ileagal to KEEP one with no DWA..

apparently, not so long ago, someone who was sending hots via the american postal system, caused a postal room to be evacutated when the venemous snake in the packet escaped into a room of postal workers..

the things you hear!! madness!!

I WISH!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

There are a few i can't get legally that i would like.

The only ones i'd struggle with on your list are the last two.

on a more serious note, anyone know where i can get a parrot snake((the Costa Rican Leptophis ahaetulla not the guyanese Bothriopsis bilineatus)) , and how much?

aimed more at reticulas, and nerys, cos they seem to know stuff...lol

i really want to add one to my collection, and if i can get one i will buy it this month, or next.

Yeah, you do - otherwise i'd have a heard by now :lol:

Parrot snake, you'll be lucky!! South American reptiles can be very hard work to obtain in small numbers.
