    Looking for Rubber Boa/Breeder

    Hello all. I am new to this site and really the herp community as a whole. A while back I became obsessed with getting my hands on a rubber boa. I love the stubby little guys but it has become apparent that they can be quite challenging to find, and are not that commonly kept by breeders. I have found one breeder but I wanted to see if any of you guys here could point me towards any potential leads. One thing that could make a difference is my location, I am located in Tennessee (in the US). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and I wish you guys all the best.

    Thanks.

    I would advocate joining the rubber boa group on FB, there are a good number of keepers there and some of them offer their offspring up

    At one point I was also looking into rubber boas and tried to find a rubber boa breeder with no luck. Either the breeder stopped producing them or the business is gone. Can you please give me the name for the breeder? I think they are cool little sausages too, so maybe one day I will add them to my collection. I don't blame the breeders for wanting to quit though, some states won't let you keep them or sell them with or without a license; they are known for long periods of fasting and difficult to start feeding for babies; and many prefers the more affordable, rosy boa and KSB because they are easier to keep and work with and has more morphs available in the market.

    Sure. The only one I've come across so far is Cold Blooded Thrillers on Facebook. They're sold out until fall 2020 so hopefully you're good with waiting, but unless I find another that's most likely who I'm gonna try to buy from. Plus, the person running the page is quite helpful and has been nothing but cordial the few times I have spoken with them. I'm not really a facebook user so there could very likely be others I have yet to come across.


    Also, to the previous response, I'll definitely check out the group. If you wouldn't mind though, could you post a link? There's a couple that pop up. Like I said before though, I'm not really a facebook user so I likely wont be the most active but it should at least give me a better shot at finding some people.

    I will try to remember when I get home (firewalls at work block all social media so I cannot get to it from here)

    So, a quick update: After much searching, I have found an individual that is selling their year old rubber boa and it hopefully will be mine very soon. I guess I should rename this thread or something now.

    Assuming I do get the little guy, I will post pictures when I can.

    Congrats on finding one. Just a small word of warning, be ready for the fact that they should be gearing towards brumation right now so be prepared to just put it down for the winter rather than getting it all set up/geared up and expecting it to feed and crawl about and be all active
