My thoughs exactly Marcial. Type and Local are 2 differnt things all together. For a first chondro python I would strongly suggest staying away from any import, period. Sure there are a handfull of breeders who do have documented local animals. Point being, dont get cought up with locals, 9 times out of 10 the "Local" animals are just a gimmick. You should look for a Liniage chart, Proper Fed/shed/def records, ID number, and a respected breeder you can trust.
