Well, I think we'll just have to agree to disagree regarding importation, marketability, etc.

However, you raise a couple interesting questions. Most of my information regarding Plated Lizard breeding has indicated although it can be done, it is not common either in the private sector or in zoos, although I believe the Honolulu Zoo has had some success in recent years with their G. major. You say you have bred many Gerrhosaurus spp. along with Zonosaurus, over several generations. I'd like to know how your caging is set up as well as how you've incubated your eggs.

The second thing I was wondering about was [and maybe I read this wrong or it was in how it was worded], but you mentioned you knew other people who'd bred Gerrhosaurus and would not share their husbandry or breeding techniques with others? Why not share that information, it can only help advance the hobby? Anything that can lessen the pressure on the wild populations - assuming people eventuall become successful enough to sell offspring - would be a benefit [except to those who try to make a living collecting the wild stuff in Africa].
