Thanks for the input. With two replies so far I learned that Hogs are hissy and pearls are pissy! Pretty funny! I actually saw and held a Hog Island yearling today at a local reptile store. He was very beautiful. I was impressed. This is the first time I've seen one live and it took every ounce of willpower I have NOT to buy him. The guy at the store said he was captive bred, but when I asked if he knew the date he was born, he answered that they don't know that kind of stuff. I was a little taken aback by that response. Should something like that be a red flag, or am I making too much of it? I mean, can I trust that this is a pure hog, or something that just looks like one? I'm definitely not an expert, so I don't know for sure what a pure hog island boa should look like.
