As per board policy, we do not allow the sale of wild caught individuals. You are allowed to post these individuals for free (plus price of shipping), but we do not allow members to profit from wild caught animals.

Currently, there are no accounts of captive breeding for that species. Ward's collected the eggs for sale.

Ward's probably did it legally though.
Have you researched how Ward's works at all?
How else are people to get specimens?

Whether or not Ward's collected the eggs legally, we don't allow the sale of wild-caught animals. We're currently discussing whether the sale of 'captive raised' common species (eggs, juvies, or adults) is appropriate. Our goal here is to reduce the dependence of the hobby on wild-caught animals. We strive for all captive bred specimens. If you're that desperate for specimens of a common species, I suggest collecting a few on your own.
