Simply switch from No to Yes when changing the status of the reptile.

You have to follow options in the menu:


For sale

Show on market



When a reptile is listed as reserved if you can more easily find it by either sorting the reptile list by reserved, or searching for reserved reptiles, this is explained for the website here and the app here. Furthermore you can add information regarding the potential buyer when editing the reptile.

Listing a reptile as for sale allows for sorting and searching as above, but also places a dollar sign, $, next to the reptile on the reptile list. Futhermore it is required for the reptile to be listed on the Reptile Scan market.

​This, along with For sale must be set to Yes for the reptile to show on the Reptile Scan market, we have a guide for the market here.

​This will remove the reptile from the active reptile list. It is not sufficient to remove it from the market, one of the two above options must be set to No.

​This is similar to the Sold option, except it is a different search and sorting category on the reptile list.

If you ever find yourself needing to reverse a status change, follow these steps:

  • Find the reptile by sorting the reptile list by sold or dead, as explained on the Reptiles menu guide.
  • Click the edit button, and enter the status tab
  • Change the relevant status from Yes to No.
