Re: Where to find hog island boa?

The best lead I know of is Vin Russo or Cutting Edge Herpetological, but be prepared to be waitlisted for a few years with Russo as his babies are in high demand. I see Hogs for sale all the time, though, so it's weird you aren't finding any.

Do you not have a FB or anything? I see quite a few people posting Hogs in the Boa Constrictor Keepers group. To be fair, a decent bit of them are mixes, but the two I listed above are your best bets for pures. I also found a Hog Island Boa Keepers group just by plugging in "Hog Island boas" into the search bar.

Better to hold out for what you want, rather than regret getting something else later. Hogs should not be that hard to find.
