Where are all the black milksnakes?
I have 2 young female milksnakes 2014 and 2015 (Lampropeltis triangulum gaigeae) but have been looking everywhere for a male with no luck. I'm writing to find out who else has some of these amazing snakes. I can't be the only one.
The breeder I got these 2 girls seem to ha e fallen off the face of the earth too so I can't even get more from him.
They are probably my favourite snakes I own and I have some pretty cool guys. So mellow and overall great snakes.
Let's hear who else works with these guys. And if anyone is expecting babies anytime soon.

Thanks for the info.
I may have located one through Nelson at tails and scales, if that doesn't come through I'll definitely contact Chuck.
It's nice to hear at least one other person is working with them here in Canada.
They are truly amazing snakes.
Definitely under rated.

I just picked up a pair of locality Black Milks that I plan to breed, but that won't be for few years. I also live in the States now, but I could ship to Canada through Reptile Express. I agree with you, they are amazing animals to keep!

When did you move to the states. Good luck with that pair. I hope you end up with tones of babies. Do you know what line they are? Mine are San Antonio line.
Too bad I can't see your pictures. I can never post pics on here properly anymore. It used to be so easy but it never seams to work anymore.

I moved here a year and a half ago. It was supposed to be temporary at first, but now it's going to be long term. I don't keep and breed many snakes any more.......I mostly do field herping and photography of wild herps now. Loads of fun!

They look great. What year? They haven't started making the change yet.
My 2014 is mostly black. In the light you can see the white banding. My 2015 is in the ugly duckling phase. It's funny how they are so different with the colour change. My older girl had all her red change, then the white started after. My younger girl is just slowly changing universally. I've heard some loose there white first too.
They start off beautiful and end off beautiful just completely different.
Good luck with those guys and thanks for sharing.

These are only a couple of months old. They are pure San Antonio Zoo (not mixed with any other lines) and they can be traced back just a couple generations to the originally collected animals from Puerto Limon, Costa Rica. I've waited a long time for animals like this! Can't wait for them to grow up and get jet black. Their parents are well over 6 feet long.

Good luck with them. I just found out that Nelson was able to locate a male for me and I will be getting it in the new year once he has him.
I'm not sure what line he will be yet but from what I have read all the lines are pretty much interconnected and basically from the same shipment or t least from the same local.
Either way I can't wait to get my little guy.
The parents of my girls were around 6 feet too. I'm hoping my male turns in to a 7 foot monster. I can't wait.

Finally after a wait I found my male, Nelson at scales and tailes was able to get me a great looking guy for my girls. Hopefully in a few years I'll have some babies of my own to offer.
I can't be happier to have a trio!
