Hey there everyone!
I’m pretty new to the community side of MorphMarket , so forgive me if the discussion has been held here before. I couldn’t find anything on it.
I started to notice that the beautiful Mexican Black Kingsnake seems to be almost unavailable in Europe, which to me seems unbelievable, since there seems to be such a huge demand. (Mostly for keeping them as pets, it seems) Whenever i find one or two - which is not often the case - they seem to be gone in a second. Also the prices for those animals are double or higher than what i have seen from US breeders for example, which is understandable when there are so few available. I just don’t get why there aren’t more breeders who produce them tough? There are other kingsnakes and coloubrids all over the place, but none of those…
I recently read about a ban on kingsnakes by the EU that never came through though on another forum but i couldn’t find another source to confirm this. That might be a reason for breeders to stop producing them, has anyone else heard about that?
