I have heard that they are not easily bred sometimes (if following the recipe method), and that they are prone to problems due to their stressful nature - certainly true for wild-caughts, which are not legal to bring in. They can be flighty. They get "depressed" with too much humidity for too long.

So, a number of folks wanted them back in the day, not many were brought in (not real easy to find in the wild unless you know their habits, some folks did figure it out), and even less were successfully maintained and bred. So not very common, ever really.

The above is what I have been told anyway.

I think they are stunning animals in person. But due to a real lack of knowledge about their habits and preferences, most people might not do well keeping them. IMO.
