I just knew this was gonna happen. Thank God I didn't start a topic on LA Pines, LOL. So I'll respond to your remarks this one more time, and that's my final word on it. Ok with that?

"You're right. It doesn't mean they aren't Kingsville. Doesn't mean they are Kingsvilles either."

I know. I already said so, in my response to DISCERN.

"You bought them from a guy who bought them from a guy who called them Kingsville. Got it."

There you go.

"You are labeling snakes as pure based on what some guy told another guy who you bought them from. People have sold Crumly reds as locality because Kingsvilles were more sought after and commanded more money, rightfully so."

I know. But this problem goes for most, - if not all -, "locality" snakes out there, not just mine. It's an uncertainty you either deal with, or you just quit keeping snakes altogether. So is there anyone out there, just someone who actually has the documented proof to show for? Really? How?

Just to be clear on this, I'm not into this whole "Kingsville" thing because I'm some kind of locality purist. For me, the "Kingsville" label serves mostly as an indication for how a Bullsnake labeled as such is supposed to look. As long as those expectations are met, - and believe me, they are -, I'm a happy customer.
