The vast majority of animals I breed are either for conservation or are exchanged with other breeders to help ensure continuing genetic variety. Since I specialise largely in what are now European Protected Species the latter has become an imperative due to the difficulty in obtaining animals from the wild - which in most cases is exactly as it should be.
Nevertheless surplus animals are occasionally available. Although this site concentrates almost exclusively on lizards occasional other herp species may become available.In addition I am now able to distribute captive bred lizards on behalf of Mark Harris. Mark and Di Rawlings have a large reptile breeding establishment, "Dragon Farm" in Portugal, which is close to rivalling that of the famous and inimitable late Bert Langerwerf of Agama International, where the vast majority of species live all the year round in extensive outdoor vivaria. The few less hardy species that cannot cope with the winter extremes still spend most of their lives in these vivaria. You can learn more about Dragon Farm here.
So the animals sold here are captive bred unless stated otherwise, from long standing captive bred colonies and are species which are proven to thrive in captivity. No animals are sold until they themselves are well established, feeding properly and have put on significant growth.
Very occasionally animals which are not captive bred are offered. This will always be specified.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: I have been badly let down by two people who ordered animals from me and later cancelled - or just stopped commnicating. Being trusting and generous I had not taken a deposit from them. In future I will accept no reservations without payment of a non-returnable deposit - please see my terms and conditions.
Why captive bred?
In the past, huge numbers of animals have been taken from the wild. Frequently those animals are unsuited for captivity and burdened with parasites and pathogens. Over-collecting has, in some instances, led to their near extinction in some locales. This has even happened with one of our own native species in one specific area which has only in recent years recovered from such over-collection during the 1960s.
So, by buying and keeping captive bred lizards you get healthy established animals from proven stock. There is no reason why, if you give them proper care, they should not live long and healthy lives - often far in excess of what wild animals would achieve. And you are even making a small contribution to conservation by relieving pressure on ever more threatened wild populations.
On the rare occasions that we sell animals that are not captive bred these have been kept by us for a number of years and are well established healthy animals.
