In my experience, none of the wild caught rosy boas that I have found in the wild were biters when found. They were all very docile as is the typical description of rosy boas. All of the captive bred rosy boas that I have produced started out kind of docile when first born, and gradually graduated into biters. As has been said previously, they are not biting to be mean, but as a feeding response.

It is fairly common knowledge, at least to the group of people that I know that work with rosy boas, that the captive bred rosies and even rosy boas that were wild caught that have been in captivity for a long period of time, end up being aggressive hand killers. Now don't get me wrong, that doesn't stop us from keeping rosy boas, but it is still the truth. Some people that only keep a few rosies and handle them very regularly have claimed to have different experiences and maybe one or two of them will chime in.

As far as all of the breeders of rosies being con artists and lying about the locales, I would have to disagree about that. Rosy boa breeders, at least the majority of them, are all into locales. In many cases, it is easy to tell if someone is lying about the locale as well. But then again, I am an Arizona resident, so many of the rosy breeders that I know have actually field collected rosy boas in Arizona and California and are very much into the locales and are honest in representing which locales their animals have come from if they sell or give away the offspring.
