So, I just got back yesterday evening from a lovely 3-day jaunt to WA for a great family reunion--but my main ecstatic moment was finding a lovely female(?) NRB (Northern Rubber Boa). You know, the gorgeous greyish green/blue with a yellowish belly! I kept her with me for the 3 days, but ended up letting her go for 2 reasons: A) I had no way to get her home with a shortly coming up flight/no shipping options/fear of her being confiscated if caught by TSA (who cares if I go to jail or get a fine?!?!?!?!?); and 2) I felt bad about removing a wild-caught specimen when I believed that CB ones may be available. That's what I get for not having cell reception: if I had, I'd've figured out just how hard it is to find a CB NRB!!!! Grrrr! Anyway, I've (obviously) fallen in love with them, am kicking myself for not trying harder, and the main gist of this long, rambling post is: Does anyone have any suggestions of breeders who CURRENTLY offer NRBs? The likelihood of going back to WA is slim, and the likelihood of finding another one if I do even slimmer. The threads I've searched all over the web show posts and possibilities from 2005 or 2008, but nothing current! Frustrating!! Plus, I live in CA, so no one here breeds them (or admits to it), and my local herp store thought I was crazy for asking. I do love my Western Hognose, but have fallen hard for the NRB... Won't someone, somewhere, please take pity on a nice lady with a heart of scales!
