    NERD Genetic Certification?

    Hello, I recently purchased a 1.1 pair of 100% het clowns. These were the first hets I ever purchased or owned so I'm a little nervous about this deal. The owner who sold them to me told me they were purchased from NERD at a reptile show about a year ago. He sent me a picture of a signed genetic certification from NERD. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is legit or not.

    He was supposed to include it, we talked about that before I purchased them. But today when I got the snakes it wasn't in the box. I texted him and he responded saying his son forgot to include it and he will mail it to me.


    I emailed NERD earlier but no reply yet. Idk if I'm just paranoid about this but I don't trust people to much and don't like getting screwed out of money.

    This is from the nerd website... Doesn't look good:

    Genetics are 100% guaranteed as described. Hets are sent with signed, authorized photo-ID documentation, and copies are retained here for future reference.

    I don't see a picture.

    I smell a fake..No NERD letter head. and the paper is to freshly crumpled. Look at the wording "You have acquired a pair of 100% NERD Ball pythons".. Double red alert genetic guarantee's 99.995% of the time are for individual animals, not groups. Also the wording of " this guarantee's that the snakes purchased are 100% heterozygous Clown and of genetic origin"

    I'm smelling fishy all over this one.

    I'm gunna shoot this to Andy and Kev and see what they say real quick.

    Thats exactly what I'm paranoid about. I read that earlier. I don't want to throw his name out there but he's on these forums and posted a shady thread about 2 months ago but I didn't discover this until earlier today. I'll send the link in a minute

    A snakes pattern is like a finger print. If you can match the pattern between the snakes you got and the ones in that thread then you have problems. I hope you didn't pay too much for these guys...
