Hi Tim,just moved house,and spent a long time sorting out a 500 gal/2200l tank for the girls,its finnished and they love it,I do need a male for them,the male I have is still a little young/small but he does try,spoke to john helms he thinks another male would get them going!the two females I let go was a mistake, still not sure what I was thinking,If I ever let any go ,you will be first on my list ,cheers

Not that old a thread! They're uncommon in the UK, your best bet is to head to the Hamm show, or similar reptile show, which would be far more likely to offer this species.

Any chance you got a link you could post about this Hamm show please? or is the Hamm short for Hammersmith?
