:Back in the sixties we used to purchase "Gray Cribos" from the Tarpon Zoo Importers. They came out of northern Colombia and were pale silver-gray with the typical melanurus facial marks, racing stripe on either side of the neck, and the solid black tail. Far more contrasting than most Central American specimens we see today. Five to six footers were $7.50. Larger were $10.00, and 8-9 footers were $20.00.

:Does anybody ever see the silver ones any more? In Costa Rica I have collected huge peach/apricot colored black-tails with bold black highlights. Very beautiful but not something I've seen here in the U.S. market.

:Cheers, Terry Vandeventer


no, i've never seen any animals like the ones you've described. only variations of the old gold to greenish as is usually seen. flecking optional....by my count, that's the 3rd different sub that's been mentioned here this year. 8 subs are currently recognized but i figure there are at least 8 [?] more down there that only the locals know about....however, in the same vein, i recently saw these really odd loking spilotes at a show not too long ago. they were solid pea soup green in color. nothing else, not one iota of black [or yellow] anywhere. i think it was regal reptiles who had them but when asked, didn't have any background on them. actually, they weren't particularly attractive [the snakes] but i'd love to see some of these cribos you mentioned terry. maybe we could send dryguy. he knows his way around down there. probably come back w/ a south american mud snake or two while he's at it. ;-]
