    Thank you for your help once again. I do understand better now. I
    live in Florida therefor I understand shipping being out of the
    question. I'll see what I can find here locally (S.W. Florida).
    There aren't alot of Jardine breeders compared to other species but
    I believe there may be one here in Fort Myers. I'll keep my fingers
    crossed. Thank you again for all your help!
