From excellent breeders an a few good friends
Most have been purchased from BREEDERS, only a few (Madgascar Ground boas) have been purchased from brokers.
Very few came from friends, primarily because not to many friends of mine breed what I want.
TRADES are the best..i love them, much more fulfilling than sales and no one gets burned or out of pocket until broke. Barter...the wave of the futre, marl my words
