I went to a breeder to get our corns. He didn't ask for any money up front, I then spent the next 2hrs looking at ALL his collection & we had a gr8 chat. If I wasn't allowed to see even just the snake before buying, I wouldn't even bother. My advice: Look else where!

This breeder may be genuin & from the posts I have read, it is common practice. Im just saying you cant be too careful these days. Perhaps you can find others who have dealt with the same breeder, just for extra re-assurance.

spyderman...I think the original post's intent was to check if Boa is legit. Boa has been breeding a while and has a great reputation. There are a few people on this thread that highly recommend him, including me. He's honest, and willing to go that extra mile. I can see though, with you being in the UK it would be hard to know many breeders in Canada. So, if anyone is interested in dealing with him, he comes recommended. Cheers all, have a great one!
MIKE

spyderman Its nice the breeder gave you that opportunity but by "looking elsewhere" if someone refuses it you are alienating yourself from some of the best breeders in the world. Most people just simply won't allow it and it has nothing to do with being shady.

Not trying to change your mind, but basically I would almost trust someone MORE if they didn't show every single person they meet their collection. It says something about what they want out of their reptiles if you ask me. But thats just me, IMHO.

Boa, you are a good businessman, and a great guy to deal with. I think it's good that Nic posted this board.. that way, They got confirmation of your business practices, and you got a ton of references in case this ever comes up again.
