    Have only seen 1 legitimate captive bred hatchling offered at Daytona 4 years ago. Very difficult to breed in captivity. Best you can find will be 4” farmed animals at the moment. South America has shut down export as well. So whatever you see I’d suggest buying them, as they won’t come in anymore.
