grow to 6 feet in the first two years Dan. LOL. Didn't you know you had that rare new Montana locale morph "scratchy pattern" that everyone is trying to get now. LOL. I'm not making fun of Montana bullsnakes; I'm trying to pick on Dan Felice. I would think the scratchy pattern may indicate a closer lineage to the w/c founders than a crisp captive produced pattern. How's the stud male Texas rat snake doing. I have a female Texas rat snake over here in California waiting to see the male I've been talking up to her about. Actually, there's no rush. I can put them together whenever he arrives.
::Here is a question...
::I have seen locality specific bulls/gophers from Kansas, Texas, Canada etc... However none from Montana. There are numerous Bulls and Gophers in the area I live in and throughout eastern Montana. Does anyone work with bloodlines from Montana??
::I am going to be contacting Fish & Game here in Montana to find out about restrictions on capturing wild specimens of Bulls/Gophers. What do you all feel about the capture of wild specimens for future breeding? Ethics and morals type thing.
::Also if noone is working with Montana bloodlines and the laws in Montana allow it I might get (if Lucky) a pair or 2 of wild caught with the intentions of future breeding in a few years, any opinions or thoughts???
::Thank for input,
:i had a pair once......the pattern on them was sort of 'scratchy', not real clean and they didn't grow very much either. i didn't particularly care for them myself.
