Wish Oregon wasn't so far away. Lol

The local shows out this way like Hamburg PA and White Plains usually bring an asking price of $45 to $60. The basic novice folks perusing all the snakes are more into the shiny, colorful and "pretty" snakes. Little Rubber Boas are looked over because there's not much out there less interesting to the majority of folks in that category other than DeKays snakes and brown Anoles.

It's the seasoned hobbyist that generally notices them and understands there is beauty in this cute little worm snake. They are drab by Milksnake and Ball Python standards, not impressive and don't generate tons of interest from the folks who see snake breeding as income because they can't be bred in large numbers.

I think they are awesome little guys but I still think prices of $100.00 or more is excessive. To me it's like charging $80.00 for a ho hum Drab Eastern Garter snake or $60.00 for an Anole. You can ask that kind of price and some folks might pay that much but most sensible folks are going to pass.

They lack curb appeal but folks like me are always going to see them as a gem and I like it that way.
