There are a couple reasons. One is that you can go to any rescue and find one. Another, which is probably the biggest is that there shouldn't be that many Burms out there. Most of them are probably going to end up in rescues.

I think you are posting this as somewhat a response to the post from the rescue in Va.? I just have one thing to say about the Va. rescues I have talked to...They are quite rude and they really shouldn't come to the Burm forum and badger the people that breed them. I also believe these people should get out of the rescue business if it bothers them that much to rescue animals.

I guess I can agree with people that there shouldn't be so many people producing these animals.

How many people here are at the age of 30 or over? How many of you have retics or burms that are only about a year old? Sure you might be able to handle a 15ft. or 20ft. snake, but that snake is only getting bigger and your only getting older. How many people here honestly think they can handle a 20+ ft. snake when your 50+ years old.

This also relates to those of you who attack minors who want large constrictors. People who are around the age of 20 run the risk of keeping snakes as a fad and people that are a bit older run the risk of having to handle a monstrous snake when they are quite old and when things don't work the way they used to.
Take care
