Fair price for Sulawesi forest turtle

Hi, does anyone know what a fair price range for a legally acquired Sulawesi forest turtle would be? Thanks,

The rarity, fragility, and complete moratorium on the species demands a high price. However, getting it into an assurance colony would be the more prudent move as this species is quickly disappearing and captive breeding efforts have been difficult.

Honestly, if I had a breeding pair I would not part with them at any price.

Thanks, have you seen any go for around 5000 recently or is that just an estimation?

I have not seen anything for L. yuwonoi since about 2007 with the exception of a single listing for a female in 2010.

My price is an estimation.

I doubt that 2010 listing was a legal import. I believe the complete moratorium of importation had been enacted by that point.

If I were you I would contact Turtle Survival Alliance and they can probably pass on your information to a guy named Cris Hagen. I know he worked with them extensively and has had some success breeding them. He could you the best advice.
