Richard Hoyer is a great biologist.. I had the pleasure of meeting/chatting with him this year..He has been studying rubber boas for almost 50 years...has one rubberboa female he caught back in the 70's that is still going strong.. He is definately the best to go herping with.. He helped me fine my guy couple years ago.

Also, becareful about buying these snakes.. Most states where they are found(Pacific states through Wyoming) protect native wildlife..and it is illegal to buy and sell native animals..

I am in Oregon, and it is ok for me to go catch one, but illegal to buy, sell, or trade...even if it is a captive bred animal..I have friends who work for Fish and game(hope to be one of them)..and have heard of folks getting these animals from Glads herps in Florida, and getting into trouble trying to re-sell them..Nasty fines.

Anyhoo... Hope you find your rubber...great snake to have..
