The natural progression is to lose track. it's easy to lose track, and over time, and multiple generations that is what is going to happen - folks will lose track. 95% of these critters lineages are lost.

Sure if they want to cheat they still can, but we're not going to make it easy for them cheat. And just because someone pieces together some BS bloodline doesn't mean everyone is going to buy into it. And if it's out front for everyone to see, then it's under maximum scrutiny. It's still not gonna be perfect, but it's what we are faced with.

The locality breeders are a dying breed and the ones who keep immaculate notes are few and far between, but they are the ones who will benefit because locality stock is going to become harder and harder to acquire for a multitude of reasons.

There was a time when we knew every snake collected and every collector collecting the snakes. That's how we know so much about some of these bloodlines. Those days are going away.
There may come a time when the only locality snakes left are in the wild, I don't want to see that happen.
-----
LOCALITY: Traceable lineage to WC snakes from the same locality.
I don't care how far apart they are (within reason) as long as the localities are stated, buyers can make up their own minds.

NON-LOCAL or GENERIC: Lineage is not traceable to WC
Generics need love too.
