I would agree with everything you said. All popular species of snakes are going to find themselves in rescues. BP's and boas are probably just as common as Burms. It's more the fact it's a lot easier to handle a 3ft angry BP then an angry 10ft. Burm. Either way were just going to have to accept as more people produce snakes and more people get into they hobby. There are going to be more rescues, I agree that we shouldn't tell people to stop producing the animals. I think the most important thing right now is to stop importing snakes that are readily available as cb's, such as ball pythons.

As for the minor debate. I agree there is probably a good percentage that get them for show and whatnot. What really peaves me is when people judge my experience because of my age. I've had people not sell me snakes(such as a Suriname RTB) because they don't think I know what I'm doing. And I know for a fact these people have sold these snakes to people that haven't kept snakes for more then a year or two. Which was a huge insult, I just wish some people would be more open to the fact there are SOME minors out there that know what they're doing and I also wish that they would be open to the fact that there are SOME adults out there that don't know what they're doing.
Take care
