Some people consider CB (captive bred) as captive born, many Americans see it this way where as most Canadians see it captive born. I find the best solution to this is to label captive bred and born animals as CBB. That way there is no confusion.
I'm a big believer of CBB animals and there are always people out there trying to make a quick buck from unknowing buyers.. They may label their animals as "CB" and lead you to think that they're "captive bred". Same thing applies to captive born... These animals would be considered to come from adult wild caught animals that came in gravid and produced offspring....
An eyeopener too! I thought that CB was captive bred... didn't realize that it could mean captive born too -- wouldn't that be about the same as captive hatched though? Guess it's just another way for people to pass of animals as something they're not....
