Oh, don't get me wrong, I agree with you for the most part. I was just acknowledging the possibility of animals that are less than pure dissapointing indiduals that don't know better. It happened to me when i was a kid around 14ish... just getting into snakes as a hobby and not just a single pet. I purchased 2 blood red corns from a local pet store and was told both were het amel. They looked like the blood reds in the couple books i had at the time so i thought they were good to go... so i had high hopes of makes awesome red snakes. I did get a few babies that were what i was looking for but many more that looked very much like tan/orangish great plains rats with difussed sides... cool in their own right, but sooo not what i was looking for. Ended up giving them to the director of a local nature center to go towards his mussaruanas and some type of cobra (can't remember the type). I sold the corn(ish) babies back to the same pet store for 10 bucks each for them to turn around and sell them as blood red corns even though they were obviously some random mutts.

It's funny that you mention writing a book... I wish you would, haha. seems like once a week you have a post that makes me think "what in the holy hell??? i had no idea".

Seems like most books available just spit out the same recycled nonsense over and over. the only books in my collection that seem fairly informative/ impressive are Hubb's Kingsnake book, a couple books i have by the Barker's, and Black Python by Ari Flagle. So if you wrote one, i'd be first in line to buy it!
