Like anything else, it's a supply and demand thing. I wrote an article for "Reptiles" on Rubber Boas and had an endless string of e-mails from people wanting them (I am raising a CB pair that are not up to breeding size).

I've seen them cheap and I've seen them expensive over the years. Their seeming "seasonal availability" tends to get people crazed and willing to pay more than if the snakes were available year round.

I have not seen either WC or CB Rubber Boas advertised that much over the last two or three years and that presents the idea of scarcity.

I started keeping them after finding my first wild ones in 2011. Luckily there was a local breeder working with them.
