It was news to me, as well, since the only information out there is from the rubber boa website. The eccentric researcher has been on the guest chats here a couple of times over the years and the unknown breeder is actually a very well known breeder in Texas. As mentioned, I'm sure everyone knows who I am referring to but I prefer not to drop names. In the 10 years I've worked with other snakes of varying degree these two guys have been a consistent wealth of information.
What always made me wonder is if Rosys and Rubbers are supposed to be congeners, and Rosys are so susceptible to problems associated with ambient humidity, then it stands to reason that there is a risk in Rubbers. As mentioned, I am slowly having better luck with the slightly xeric conditions and occasional soaks.
Mike
