Albinos are nige but normals shouldnt be more than £500.

If you can wait there will be some CB baby kayuadi available.

PLEASE stop referring to them as "superdwarves" as the name is missleading and open to interpretation that could leave you with a 15 footer.

well, that got me mate to be honest.. i knew dwarfs could reach 15, so presumed supers would be smaller.

The name superdwarf is a PITA.

A kayuadi retic will stay nice and small (well under 10 feet) but a jampea is more than capable of reaching 15 feet and beyond. I have seen both localities (and others) labelled as "superdwarves".

The term is just an American sales ploy and should be ignored completely. More and more Americans have now started to ignore it so it has no more place here than it ever has.

Thanks for the info guys, the reason I asked was I'm thinking about buying one from a guy locally and wanted to know the rough price.
It's a Kayuadi, 4 year old female and he's selling it for £450.
Sounds about right from what I've seen.

Hi, Peter here. I do indeed have a male Kayuadi for sale, although It looks like a suitable home may have been found for it.

The female is not a Kayuadi, but a kalaotao. It looks like I may well be keeping her now also.

Dan, you are spot on. Super dwarf is a "Cop out" bit of terminology from across the water which lumps all of the various Island locales together as one big cross bred amalgamation.
