Hi John
TW sort of follows Japanese crazes. Snakes are just starting to get popular in the pet trade here. The pet shops here have mainly,US snakes, but I have noticed a influx of snakes from all over the world, and more and more herp shops are popping up all over. There is a demand for high end morphs, of the smaller more commoly kept species, Kings, corns, milks, Leopard geckos, The market here is very new, anything sells. Including animals with heavy price tags.
To me it looks like the maket will explode or crash it's reached a tipping point. At the moment the herp shops here are a mess, I honestly feel sorry for the animals that end up here, however some do end up in good homes, and the herp shops are improving.
I'v never delt with any importes, I did see a TW importer exporter advertised here on Kingsnake.com, but never contacted him.
