Sydney Australia?
You'd better check very carefully into his high rating. Either he's a scammer, or doesn't know the rules. Australia has some of the strictest export laws. Unless you and the vendor jump through many hoops, and lie, you won't be getting them with legal paperwork very easily. Of course, smuggling does happen, but they tend to get caught, with you involved as well if your name is on the box.
There must be something in the US or even Europe that appeals to you and is much easier to get.

cb amyae are readily available here in the states for not much more than that price. Is it really worth risking going to jail just to save a few $$$?

if its sounds 2 good 2 be true it is!! from what people have told me its illegal so im going 2 pass, the guy told me he shipps threw the mail in a new shipping box that holds a set temp for a few days and they normaly get 2 the us in 3-4 days, he said they are all captive breed and he has over 30 of them, dam dam dam that was a great deal i wish it wasnt against the law

Only $650 US, and then a $25,000 fine and maybe prison time.
