Albey’s LBS (Line Bred Snow)
Albey Scholl got his original pair in 1998. Some
pictures and history posted by Albey can be found on his website. (Link below)
In roughly 2006 Albey made the decision to stop
producing Line Bred Snow’s.
Albey did produce a very limited quantity a few
years later, and then stopped working with the Line Bred Snows entirely in 2010-2011ish following the exploding popularity of Mack Snows.
Matt Baronak of SaSobek Reptiles got his first
Albey’s Line Bred Snow male directly from Albey at the NARBC Tinley show in late 2013 or so to the best of his recollection.
