Re: Herp Lingo :)

I agree it is a good idea, there are a few questions that pop up over and over again, thing is tho, even with an exhaustive list some people will just ask rather than go look.

Re: Herp Lingo :)

Personally I don't think it would hurt to try I know as I learn new things I'll slowly but surely add them.

Hopefully after awhile I can remake the thread into a large comprehensive post that will be much less confusing and readily accessible

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
