Armadillo pricing advice

Postby prk22 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 8:50 pm

I was wondering what everyone's experience with seeing domestic bred armadillo pricing to start at...or 'rehoming' fees.

Thank you.

They so rarely breed in captivity that any captive price is probably reasonable, almost all when available are wild caught. They tend to be less than anteaters but I didn't pay to much attention. Tamandu anteater can vary from 1,500(almost never that low any more though) to 8,000(usually only on captive bred babies).

I'd say 1,800 or less would be a good price for any dillo captive born and young could be more though.

It also depends on the species. The ones that can curl up completely into a ball are more expensive.

One has moved in somewhere close by, I see tons of new digging cones every morning. The native kind can't be worth anything. Its like a possum. Set out a trap and catch a new one every night.
