    Thanks! They are fantastic. Can't wait for them to grow and color up. Now for my least favorite part of new snakes, leaving them alone for a week or two so they can settle in.

    You live in AZ. Go catch some hatchlings in the late summer. Might find something interesting. As far as forks go, I know Joe has some 2018s left and a couple 2017 males. Shoot him an email. Super cool guy. I got mine from him. He charges about half of what the breeders sell theirs for. Which is crazy, because they all got them from him. I can pm you his email if you want.

    I might actually consider going out to look for wild gophers one day. I recently bought my first El Paso locale sonoran gopher from Joseph of GopherYourPet based in Houston, Texas, and I've already fallen in love with the subspecies. I want to one day start a breeding group of sonorans but I'm wondering how I should go about this, considering captive sonoran gophers vary in their specific locales. I've never bred snakes and I've only gone herping a couple of times and I've yet to encounter anything outside of rattlesnakes here. Not sure if I should spend some more money and time on buying more captive bred sonorans with different genes / from different areas, or if I should figure out how to get some wild snakes from Arizona myself.

    I'm not from AZ, but you'd want to find out your local regs on catching or keeping native snakes...it might be better (easier for you) if you don't have local natives that
    you have to account for, depending on your Fish & Game laws there. Just saying...especially if you are thinking about breeding &/or selling any. Always best to stay on
    the right side of F & G regs.
