They really are not that bad. Babies can be difficult at times but adults can be quite easy. I actually caught an adult Eastern Yellow Bellied at well over 3 ft. that was super tame and ate thawed mice right away. I have also had w.c. adults that were problem feeders and quite nasty. What surprises me the most about these snakes is how much variation there is in wild caught adults in temperment and willingness to eat in captivity. They are bred in captivity but I do not know of any specific breeders. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
