Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the pet, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the pet. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal.
The advertiser should only release the reptile when they are 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the pet from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
