Very stunning blacktail and awesome pictigaster. Favorites of mine! Are many people breeding pictigaster? CB specimens seem hard to come across in my surfing forays. I only know of Mardi Snipes to regularly breed them.

Yes the pics do not do them justice I am sure. Do you catch intergrades or are you referring to in the hobby? If they only have a few babies why are they not more sought after (like Timbers rattlers for example).

I hope that was not your blood in the Black tails tub! Are they easy to keep and breed?

What I mean is alot of ingrades are bred in captivity .They are very sought after here .That is hot sause .I think.It had food in it until we found the snake.

In the usa timbers are a common and cheap snake to buy .Pictigaster is around the same range as lepidus in price not high dollar but not as cheap as a timber.Timbers cost 35 to 75 and pics and leps 125 to 250.
