Ascertain the species and CITES designation. All boids are at least appendix 2.
Some are appendix 1.
Appendix 2 animals require an export permit from the country of origin.
Appendix 1 animals require two CITES permits. One from country of origin and one from
the receiving country. These can be very difficult to get.
Go to the Canadian forum and read my feature page
on importing and exporting...most of the details are listed there.
If the species is available in Canada it is best to buy it here.
While large US breeders will do CITES most small private breeders are not interested, especially with
small orders. This is understandable.
Expect to drop a minimum of half a grand US for any breeder to be willing to even start the paper work.
Appendix 2 captive produced permits take around 3 months to obtain.
If the species you want is strictly indigenous to Australia, you may as well forget it.
Permits are rarely granted for the export of Aussie snakes and monitors, this is due to Lacey act
and the fact that it is hard to trace the legal origin of most.
