:Terry, you don't by any chance have a pic of that yellow tail do you? If I caught (saw) a snake like that I think I would feel my heart pounding out of my chest.
::: I remember them. A friend had a pair. I remember they were savage and they stayed in the branches in his 6' tall cage. I thought of Cribos as being very arboreal snakes because of his.
::: I remember Tarpon Zoo and all of the other dealers who advertised in the back of "Field and Stream" and "Outdoor Life" magazines.I always think of you as having those incredible locality Boa Constrictors.Do you still breed boas? Are you still Arco Iris?
::Exactly! I was dissappointed after many years of not seeing melanurus on the market, to suddenly seeing Honduran specimens that were often as dark as Texas Indigos. Yesterday I purchased the male that Mark Lucas was advertising. He had a photo in the classifieds. Kind of light honey brown I guess. As close to the Costa Rican cribos as I've seen. No silver ones so far.
::Yeah Steve, I'm still Arco Iris Herpetoculture. Cut back a lot though. Still breeding some boas, Chondros, rainbows, etc. Can't ship out of Jackson, Mississippi by any method so that's put a damper on 30 years of building a reptile breeding business. Just going through my second childhood here. Caught a 9'1" Yellow-tail Cribo a couple of years ago in Peru. That, and visiting this site have rekindled my interest in Drymarchon. Cheers, Terry
that big girl dwight is holding in the gallery looks like she may be pushing 9'. all the subs can put on size pretty quick but yt's can really explode. i received a smallish [maybe 3'] yt female from mark lucas about 18 months ago. today she measured just shy of 7' and she's the baby of the bunch! she's never seen a rat that she didn't love....to eat. and lastly, to any tampa bay fans out there, i have a question. i'm aware of the bucs record in games w/ the temp below 40* but i'm in the dark about how they do in temps below 20*? not too good? as our fearless leader likes to say.......HAH!
