    But hey I am just a hobbyist not a full time business entity , not want to get involved in all these paperwork !

    Time better spent on learning , understanding my pets to grow ,breed them well .

    Yes ok I thought so.. The problem is we have not enough I. forstenii here and need new bloodline. Also there aren't much breeder and most of the breeder don't breed constantly..
