    Default Are these available in the Pet Trade?

    I posted this in another thread, but my initial post was overlooked.

    This resembles what I had in mind when I first started looking at snakes.

    Nevermind, Ian said in the other thread that they were illegal.

    You should look into rough green snakes...They are the definition of what I picture in my mind when I think of snakes. I think if I were ever to get a snakes, its the only species I would buy.

    Try an Amazon Tree Boa maybe as they are similar in appearance & also tree snakes, Mark

    As for available, what Mark said Amazon Tree Boas are the most readily available with a similar look.

    Cat Eye snakes look similar (Leptodeira septentrionalis) and appear to be fine unless there was a name change to Leptodeira from something else on the regs?
    Good luck finding any and feeding would be a pain. Rear fanged as well.

    Also some of the different Bronzeback snakes from the genus Dendrelaphis look similar and can come in crazy colours. Never seen one in person but Ian might have one? Some are believed to be rear fanged (some debate) & also not very available as far as I know.

    Leptodeira hasn't changed name.

    Boiga irregularis is not only illegal in Alberta, but in many parts of the USA [including the places where herps are commonly imported and exported].

    Dendrelaphis is readily available. There are a bunch of them in Calgary, though none for sale at the moment.
    The trend is to post names and numbers of "pets" here. That seems...um...bulky.
    23+ species of salamander
    28+ families and subfamilies of reptile, amphibian, and arachnid.
    Only one has a name. The Beast.

    Thanks everybody. ATBs, I think, will be my next legless endeavor. Not for a long while though. I need a man cave, and there are a few other things I want to get before ATBs.
