I'm desperately looking for another CA redback (preferably Box Canyon locale) to replace what was my favorite chuck (see previous posts about losing my 2 male chucks during brumation), hopefully in time to breed with my females. If anyone can make any recommendations, I'd be grateful.

What is always difficult it seems is to find one with not only good color but just as important to me is to find one that is very laid back like my Box Canyon male was (not aggressive or flighty at all). I'd even describe him as "puppy dog" tame even though he was wild caught. Although a CB adult would be preferable in many respects, it seems my best bet in obtaining an adult male like I'm looking for (good color and a great temperament) is to have access to a group of WC chucks from which I can choose or have the right connections with the right people. Unfortunately for me, I have neither. I suppose I'll have to settle for what I can get. Although a Box Canyon locale is preferred, even another CA redback locality would do I suppose. Since the chucks from Box Canyon are so variable, maybe it's not as important as keeping other locales pure (e.g. Crater Range AZ) where the males especially are more consistent in the way they look.
