erm will be very hard pressed to find a breeder seeing as no one really breeds them

most shops should be able to get cf or wc easily though

fixx has bred boscs before, dont know if she does it often but im pretty sure she said she's done it.

i wouldnt mind doing it myself but they're hard to sex and the female requires quite some depth of burrowing substrate!

I wouldn't normally recommend any shop but the one by me has boscs for £40. but I have seen them similar priced elsewhere as well.

i paid £50 for my bosc because I got its viv with it so overall i paid £250. alone he shouldve been £80. Ive seen them cheaper but I was quite happy to get him at this price and he didn't take too long to tame down and still doesnt show agression much, though he has his odd mood swings :p

it was the mill web site, says they have some, i rang just before christmas but the person i needed to speak to was busy and they never got back to me, i asked if they did have any and they said yes so u should go and have a look, too far for me. they're still on the website tho

would there be any problems trying to tame a 2 footer, is it easier to get a baby?

my bosc wasnt a baby when i got him and he's only bit me once and thats cuz i touched his sore toe. the experience i had when boscs came into the pet shop where i used to work is that they were sickly little things, CF, that didnt last very long.

Tried to force feed them but they werent having any of it so i had to let nature run its course which is a great shame.
