Dont buy from Chris Newman (currently trading from Southampton, previously trading from Headington Ox). My daughter obtained 2 bearded dragons from Chris Newman a while ago and he also tried hard to sell her a possum I think. One lizard quickly got sick and the other within a day after that. The vet said they died from sand they ate before we had them.

I had a bad feeling about this guy when I saw him and the way he was keeping and selling animals from his house. I felt sorry for them all. This Chris Newman guy tried to say he was an 'expert' but the vet said he isnt at all and he has a very bad background. So I checked around and guess what, the vet is completely right. My PI friend managed to find out a few things about Mr Newman and here they are:

In the 1970s/80s he was known to be illegally catching and selling British wildlife (mostly adders, grass snakes and toads) and selling them from his fathers place in High Wycombe.

In the 1980s the RSPCA was on his case for cruelty to snakes.

In 1989 he was arrested at Harwich docks with several others trying to smuggle snakes and illegal porn into the UK and they were all siezed. One of his ex-freinds also arrested said he used a red van to smuggle wildlife into the country.

In the 1990s he ran a magazine called 'Reptiles/Reptilian' and shafted a load of people out of their money.

A few years ago he bought his neighbours house from the spoils of illegal wildlife trade.

I had figured that Mr Newman was just a small time animal trader but now I know what he is really. I think people should be warned so I'm doing that.

So don't buy from Chris Newman - he is crooked in the worst way and shouldn't be allowed near children or animals. He's not an expert in anything and is apparently laughed at by real vets.
