: I am trying to find out how I can acquire a tuatara (a lizardlike reptile from New Zealand). If anyone has any information to start me on the right path, I would greatly appreciate a reply. Please send me an email as I am not often in the forums. Thank you.
I live in N.Z. and am amazed that you should ask to try and aquire an endangered species such as a tuatara.Perhaps they could be available onthe black market but such animals are invairiably caught by ilegal means(from offshore islands acessable only by boat and with permits for entry)The fact that people like you advertise to get them only creates a market for them and thereby encourages this sort of carry on.An endangered species such as this does not need or want this kind of attention!!!
