So I've been looking into it. Got the space outdoors to house several more rock iguanas with no problems - I'd have to build some new enclosures. But I've been trying to find some solid breeders. I know Ty has some for sale, so does Drsam (Florida Iguana and Tortoise Farm, or whatever it's called), but I was thinking to get a Russets and the only breeder I know of that produces those is Rob Ehrig, so can anyone hand me his details i.e., phone number/email so I can look into it some more. Any tips or info would be much appreciated. Money is not an issue.

I had his number, but not sure what I did with it. I know Ben Siegel often has rhinos from Rob, but with his current situation not sure if he would have anything.

Thanks James. If you happen to find it, please do PM me, no rush/worries. I remember Ben having them in the past but you're right, with his whole situation, I'd rather avoid doing business with him until things have cleared up.

Spoke with Ty. He has a 3 year old male I will probably end up purchasing. Hes traveling on a business trip now so I won't hear from him till next week! Gives me time to build an enclosure.

He's not tame. Only use to people putting his food in. I think I'm going to buy David Blair's adult absolute tame male, he's a little more expensive but it'd be worth it. I'm gonna have the new enclosure finished by December 17th and I'd have the iguana by the 18th. Dimensions will be 14x7x6 ft.

Right now, we're having a real warm winter. Today the high was 91, settled at around 82 and right now as we speak its 76. I ordered pig blankets by KANE and they should be coming in soon this week incase it gets too cold. Meanwhile, I have huge 3ft heat lamps that I use for myself beside their hide, they came in handy a couple weeks ago when it dropped to 47 at night.

Haha yea Id like to keep my fingers. I almost lost my pinky to a wild snapper while herping half a year ago, it all got stitched back up and has healed nicely. The male David has is listed for a high price but would be very well worth it.

Rob, we aren't having a whole lot of snow here in Montana yet either. We did get a bit last night though. Yeah, I would say that the extra money is worth it to not deal with a large aggressive lizard.

Not sure if you're still looking, but....

I can't get a direct link for you, but that should show you everything you need. Exotics Plus on FB from Maine.

Upon further investigation, www.exoticsplus.com and seems like they're opening in NH not Maine.

Thanks for the link bud. But I've decided to purchase David Blair's male. Just gotta wait for the enclosure to finish.

Decided to purchase the male Ty offered me instead. After thinking things through, I'd rather obtain a 3 year old as opposed to a 25 year old (the one David has). Taming shouldn't be too hard and ill be sending Ty the money on the 13th of this month. Enclosure should be done the 17th so id have the rhino by the 18th.
