I think I've seen the ad(s) you're speaking of. Good lucking getting them to respond. I've written both Exotic Aquatic & Reptiles and Two Amigos, no responce back yet. And for the $20 shipping on that one ad...I'd say that's a little fishy, as even most ground carriers such as UPS, Airborne, etc are generally around 25-30 or better. They are very nice-looking snakes though, and are most certainly arboreal. I'd really like to get 1.1 of them, but only if those people are for real and they'll reply to their responces.
