    It is very very hard to find a baby ETB.. most of the adults are imports and I don't even know of a breeder. But if you do find a breeder let me know :).

    Also if you do find a baby keep in mind it is most likely either an import baby or the parents were imported.

    *edit*
    Sorry so i do not know what the price of a baby would be. I am sure a CBB baby would be a lot more than a Wild Caught. But adults wild caught are normally $200-350 Range.

    Nope..not illegal, just not too many quality breeders. There are plenty importers of WCs and some CBs, but very few CBB breeders out there.

    With snakes like GTP and ETBs, it certainly pays to research the breeder and ask for references.

    Ok. WC is wild caught, CB is captive bred and CBB is captive born and bred. I agree, research the breeder. For the price of these animals that is important. I recently Got hosed on a GTP. Babies are rare do to the import thing. Not many breeders out there. kingsnake.com did have some captive bred specimens but not many. You are looking at 350+ shipping for a captive bred one. Keep in mind that this guys may look pretty but they also have the biggest teeth of all no venomous snakes. They will rip you apart if you get a nasty one. I want one of those in the future too. When I find a good breeder then I will buy a baby one. Til then I'll just wait and be happy with what I have. Good luck though

    Babies can resemble anything out of a bag of M&Ms...pick a color, any color. But as they age, they typically lose their colors and turn green.

    Although, some individual snakes may keep some of their color (e.g. blues). Typically, these are the more expensive snakes.

    lol. may as well just call them bythons or poas. Just mash them all into one classification. I too have seen and heard these names. I mean emmys usually have only red babies that turn green with white horizontal markings on the back. they will have hints of blue sometimes and some can even be paternless. The green tree pythons are red or yellow babies that usually turn green but can stay yellow, turn blue, have blue markings, yadda yadda yadda. Just get one of each

    Ok then. You can find captive born, but you'll have to look hard. These snakes require a very strick husbandry set up (i.e. right humiditys and temps) and it can be difficult to maintain. As most areboreals, they have a tendancey to be mean. I'm sure you can find nice ones, I've seen them for sale already. If you do go with with an import, go with something that the person has had for more than a couple months and has already been dewormed and treated for parasites. You said you wanted to wait a few years, so by then I'm hoping there will be more captive bred babies available. I myself would love to have an emmy.
