Please describe your animal(s)in as much detail as possible, Add a few photos of the animal and add feeding, shedding records where possible.
What sex is the animal (If known)If you don't know say so.
How long have you had the animal?
How often is it feeding?
What size prey item is it feeding on?
What morph/breed is it(if any) If you don't know say so.
Animal Weight (This helps with those looking for breeding stock)
Animal Length/Girth

Tell us where you are based and contact details

Make sure all the information given is correct
All this information will help with your sale.


If not provided, ask for photographs,feeding and shedding records for the animal(s)
Once you are happy with the information regarding the animal, and you are still interested, arrange a viewing with the seller and the animal in question.
You can then make sure the animal is healthy and as described

I would recommend not to purchase without seeing the animal in person (unless it was from a reputable breeder/shop)

Happy Shopping!

Great post! The only item I would add is, for babies, to post/ask for photos of the parent animals. That will give you a good idea where a baby is headed once it matures....
