These adults are f1 cb. The grandparents were wild caught.

The breeder fell under the spell of subocs and kept many over the years until he overdosed. He parted with most of his adults but kept plenty of juvenals to re-start again in a few years after a break. I look forward to his return, as he had the cleanest wild-type subocs I've seen.

I've never felt the need to take a break from subocs. Easy maintenance, quiet, they are some of the least demanding animals I've worked with, and among the most attractive to me.

The rest of my collection consists of racers, coachwhips, watersnakes, some choice boas, several American ratsnakes and a few Eastern indigos. After all the hissing, tail rattling, neck arching, fussy feeding and poop cleaning, the subocs are like my quiet place where I can relax after begging a dozen sighthunters to eat something besides my flesh.
