Hi guys, it's been awhile! I love snakes in general, and I actually tend to like the patterns and coloration of retics over burms, so please don't take the title of my post as my preference. I personally own two burms, and I chose to buy them because in my experience, and from the majority of what I've read, they are friendlier. I have recently begun looking into buying a more expensive burm, to maaaaaaaaaaybe possibly try to breed. Once I started looking, it seems like there ia a huge shortage of burms out there, and that they don't seem to have the variety that retics do. I live in Houston, and here, both snakes require the same permit, so legally it isn't any different. Why then, does it seem like retics are more commonly available? Maybe I'm missing something obvious (The Everglades...), but I thought I'd see if anyone else knew. Thanks in advance peoples!
