Too good to be true?

Another CL Link. This is for a pretty docile GTP. According to the seller/ owner.
What red flags do people see? Not actually interested in getting the animal, but I thought that these were supposed to be display only animals. Seeing as $500 includes everything she needs though, it is good for someone. Provided all is true.

Re: Too good to be true?

She looks rather dehydrated, but other than that not too many red flags for me. I'm not experienced with GTPs, though. The few people I know who own them do feed them mice, and do mention they have a higher feeding response at night so it's best to handle them during the day. CBB GTPs tend to have good temperaments from what I've been told.

Is this in reference to the skin folds? (Best seen in pictures 2, 3, and 4)

Yes. You don't see those in properly hydrated snakes, no matter how long they sit in one place curled up. At least, that's what I've noticed in my animals. I don't see any vertical stripes (as they're sometimes called) unless I leave their enclosure dry for too long. You can also see a bunch of the scales are raised and wrinkled in pic 4. The colors are very dull and dark and overall the scales have a rougher than average appearance.

As BSG said I think she looks a bit dehydrated apart from that she looks ok. And as for the handling side, a guy up the street from me has one and handles it no problems in the daylight hours, but at night it becomes a completely different animal

Yep, mild dehydration but otherwise a nice looking specimen. Nothing some jumbo mice and attention to humidity won't cure though. I think it's a good deal for anyone truly interested. As always though with CL buyer beware. See if the seller has a warranty in writing for the health and a discount for the minor disability. Asking price doesn't always equal offered price or negotiatiable price..

REM, if you check the classifieds right here on SSnakess, Ed exotics is selling a proven breeding pair of GTP'S for 800.00
They are more pricy but look better than the one on CL. Just steer anyone you know interested in one to this guy bc his look much better.
