    Introduce a new animal to captive breeding

    I wanted to know what you guys would bring to the CB market if you could start a project with any herp that doesn't have an established captive population. For me it would definitely be the Machete Savane (Amazon Whipsnake) a 9 foot colubrid is my dream snake for sure. :)

    Sunbeam Snake. There are very few CBB critters available, most are WC or LTC, especially in the US.

    Desert glossy snakes...hatchlings are tiny & hard to get feeding on pinky mice, but adults are such nice pets, & stay small- very graceful & pretty creatures.

    sunbeam and desert glossy snakes are gorgeous. I had heard of them but never really looked into them. Machete Savane still takes the cake for me but it's really interesting seeing everyone's responses.

    I don't know if these species qualify as being introduced to captive breeding since they are bred in captivity, but they're still pretty uncommon in the pet hobby.

    I'd like to see more mangroves, white lips and Angolan Pythons in the hobby. They're hard to come by and many are still WC.

    I really just meant things that aren't very established in captivity. Anything that's easier to find wild caught than captive bred, or can't be found either way at all.

    Coachwhips. They usually don't acclimate to captivity very well at all, which is largely why you don't see them, but since we're talking hypotheticals... let's pretend they're willing to eat and settle down after a couple generations. I just think they're really pretty and I like them a lot.

    Coachwhips is a great choice I didn't even think of those. We have them around here and I've seen a few definitely a gorgeous snake.
