This doesn't really make sense to me because I don't think I've ever seen an adult russian offered for sale anywhere anytime.

My guess would be that the Russians that have been coming in for the last few years are coming of age and are starting to reproduce.


>>The reason you are all seeing TONS of baby Russians is because a VERY smart importer oxytocin'd ALL the import females and dropped eggs. He then incubated the eggs and not only sold the adults, but the babies as well. Not only was that a very smart call on his part to make more money, but also created many nice captive hatched baby Russians to become available to hobbyists.
