They usually end up at wholesalers who in turn advertise them on Kingsnake classifieds. An example would be some rather substandard looking Jurassic Milks that are advertised over and over again in the classifieds section by a wholesaler.

However these hybrid animals still make for stronger animals which make great pets! Easir to feed adn harder to kill for novices.They make a great first snake and will bring years of pleasure to anyone keeping them.

If I was you I would consider worring about the vendors who sell wildcaught animals instead. Have you given some thought to the hundreds and thousands of imported lizards, snakes and turtles which these "vendors" are selling ? Do you realize that 99.99% end up dead? How many of these turtles, Torts, Ball Pythons, monitors, iguanids, Uromastix ect ect actually make it?
Have you considered what this does to wild populations.
Maybe you should consider worring about these things before worring about Captive born animals that the vendors are selling.
