*Possibly* getting something new

I've been holding out pretty strong when it comes to getting anything new. Every now and then I hop on craigslist and just see what people are selling, never really intending to get anything. Well one thing that caught my eye, and it has for a while now, is a young Mexican black king. I thought a couple days ago, "this thing has been posted up forever" and started thinking back. I think it's been up for at least 6 months, but probably a good bit more. Seems like a good deal...low price for the snake, complete set up, and a bag of mice. Then I realize...there's no method to contact the seller whatsoever. I used the little mechanism where you can let CL know, and they will send the seller a message to add some contact info, but it hasn't changed yet.

If he adds contact info, I think there's a good chance I'll pick him. This is definitely not on the top of my list, but I love kings in general, and I've always liked MBKs, so why not. The only thing that struck me as odd is that it seems a bit small for its age. Looking closer at the pictures it seems like the thermostat in the tank is reading really low, which may be the cause for his slow growth. But I'm sort of hoping that this person gets the notifications from CL and I can pick it up. Once it got in my head, the idea has just been growing on me.

Good luck! MBK's are sweet snakes. I think you'd enjoy adding one to your collection.

Awww! I know the feeling. There is a dumerlis boa that has been haunting my CL for a while, but I really don't want any other boas except maybe a T+ nic. But it sure is tempting!

Good luck with getting that MBK though!

Thanks yall. I'm hoping it works out, but as for now it's out of my hands. I will update this if I happen to get my hands on it.
