Morph= Cross-breeding of snakes

Uhm.....No. Hybrid is the word you're looking for, i.e. a bateater is a hybrid cross between a Burmese and a retic, or a superball is a hybrid of a ball python and a blood/short tailed python.

A morph is typically a color phase or having to do with the snake's pattern like a tiger retic, green Burmese, yellow blood, etc.

Re: Herp Lingo :)

RTB = red-tailed boa (usually used when one isn't sure if it's pure Bcc or Bci).
ETB = emerald tree boa
wormie = baby snake
snapperhead = slang term for blood/short-tailed pythons (they like to bite, lol)
pipping = when the baby snake slits the egg to emerge
lock = breeding event, refers to the tails "locked" together with insertion

I can't think of anything else right now. lol

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

Oh, I know, I do the same thing but when looking at ads I always question which one it is.
