You have to be careful with this one as there are quite a few people who use CB to mean "captive born" rather than "captive bred". An example would be adult snakes harvested for the skin trade being allowed to lay their eggs or have their young before they are slaughtered, then the eggs/young are sold. The babies are born in captivity but are not captive bred.

CBB = Captive Bred & Born
Farm raised = self explanatory

Turtle farms and alligator farms are common, but the term also seems to be used for the slaughter house "farms" as well sometimes.

STP = Short Tailed Python
