Although I appreciate your comments I don’t think it’s a husbandry issue. If I only had a few snakes in my collection or was new at keeping herps or if I had other snakes in my collection with this problem or if these were long term captives before developing the skin issue I might think it’s a husbandry issue. But it’s none of the above. I have a well established collection of several hundred colubrids none of which have this problem. Suddenly I acquire 5 new snakes from the same person and within the month 4 out of 5 develop this skin issue. I agree with you that euthanizing them and expecting a refund might be extreme but expecting a refund while they are still alive I think is reasonable. I understand what you mean about losing a few herps to nature once in a while but those who are in the business of selling herps should also step up to the plate and be responsible for selling quality herps. Those of us that have been at this a while know how important our reputation is. I would still like to know what it is and if it’s treatable.
