Yup. I have been chatting with AlanB and he is a stand up guy who is honest and led me in the right direction to obtain genetically healthier specimens.

It seems to be Rango may be in the category of a goner but im still hoping he will have a good long life. All I can do is provide a proper habitat and varied diet. He is growing fast so that helps me feel a tad better. I am also enjoying everyones input on the matter and I am sure other reptile hobbyist will stumble upon this and learn. As with you all I am just upset some people knowingly heavily inbreed these animals of which the captive population was already limited in their genetic availability.

Question for everyone, does anyone know how many original breeders there were and what about older snakes who have not been so heavily inbred if they are still around to help turn around the mistakes of the past 10 years at least?
