    no, I haven't heard of any. I am sure there are some. If you go to the ontario reptile show, they sometimes have some there (although I didn't see any at the last show in June). I have seen them at pet stores sometimes too, but they have been very malnurished and sickly. Not to mention the price (I have seen some uros at the pet store for like 300 dollars).
    Keep in mind with a uro though, these are not simple reptiles. They need a large cage (40g min, but a 50-75 is best) and their food is quite expensive (I easily spend 10 bucks a week on food for my uro). Their lighting is also quite complicated. They need a very very hot basking spot (110-130) and UV lighting. Just stuff to keep in mind before you decide to get one. They are really great lizards though, they can be pretty grumpy, but some do allow you to handle them. Just watch out for the spikey tail! ;)

    Not to be mean or anything, but if you just spent the last 5 days reading up on them, then why did you start this post by saying that you know nothign about them?
