I guess you're not the only one that's surprised Simon..lol...I guess high quality leopard geckos don't have much of a market here in Canada, that's why we're quickly working on being able to ship worldwide within a few short weeks-couple months.
I find that not many Canadians tend to support the higher end Canadian reptile breeders, and will still look for the "same" stuff from the States...which is fine i guess.
That is the ONLY way to make money in Canada. If you're gonna wait for Canadian sales for anything hi-end, you'll be waiting a LONG LONG time. You are making a very smart move to be able to ship internationally. You WON'T regret it, trust me.
