Re: Question for Michael for Laurie

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!
