Thanks Rich, good point and I would definitely agree. Inheritance is the main key to temperament in captive bred boids. I donít believe there are too many U.S. boid breeders working with, or wanting to deal with, aggressive adults in their breeding programs. Captive breeding in the U.S. tends to automatically exclude the genetic movement of aggressive temperaments on to future generations in most cases. You are absolutely correct in that there is definitely not the adult breeder selection going on with the farmed situation. All of my adult bloods have been extremely calm as well as the few young I have produced. However, I see this most markedly with the green anacondas we produce. We are working with very calm adult bloodlines in our breeding program and have never produced any aggressive young out of 5 litters over the last 10 years. These neonates can be easily handled from the day they are born and believe the over-riding factor is the temperament of the adults. Hereís a couple of off topic shots of some of the greens we have produced, a day old neonate and a 5 year old, second generation CBB female.
