:I used to collect Florida kings commercially back in the 70s.
:I wouldn't do it now of course but that doesn't make me a bad guy.
:Ted sharing stories of having caught indigos in his youth only reminds us of the 'old days' before the rampant developement.
:Whether or not he sold them is now pointless---the habitat and snakes are gone anyway.


Yes, you're right. I used to sell just about every snake found in this area...scarlet kings, indigos, rattlers, corals, etc., and of course I don't now. Unfortunately all the great herping areas here were not decimated by collecting but by heavy development.
Roads that were once sleepy, hardly traveled, are now major six or eight lane highways that give no hint of there ever being snakes anywhere near.
