Question about breeders & price of Shingleback in USA

Postby z6171181 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 3:34 pm

Hi Im new Here. :D

I kow Shingleback is extremely rare and expensive and hard to breed in USA.
As a blue tongue skink owner, Shingleback is one of my ultimate target to put into my collection.

I am not looking for seller now. But I would like to know who is producing this rare lizard in USA.
And also for the price. Someone told me it is 2000-6000 USD. But he was not sure.
If I just want a Shingleback as pet, not creazy with color, gender, or something else, how much money do I expect to cost for the lizard?

I am saving money in my bank accunt now.

English is not my mother tongue, sorry if I have wrong grammer or spelling in this post. :D :D

All I can say is good luck with that! I have one and have been looking for another for quite some time. I've been in the reptile hobby 40+ years and know just about everyone. Nothing out there, whoever breeds them holds on dearly. Don't blame them, so would I. If by some miraculous discovery you do find one, you will pay upwards of five grand. And please tell me if you do find one.

Hi thanks for reply!
I know few people who has Shingleback in other countries. But still prefer the US celler.
Shingleback is the unicorn in USA. I will spend few years to save money and find them ; )
