Any reputable Corn Island Boa breeders?

Those BRBs are gorgeous, I have seen them for years.

I am so partial to my Hogg Island, she's super!

I came across another species of island boa...Corn Island Boa..anyone know of breeders for these guys?

I am deciding between BRBs, or Corn Island I think.

Thanks again.

there is quite a big price difference between brazilian rainbow boas and corn islands but THE ONLY person to get them from is Gus Rentfro @

Thanks a lot. Yeah I figure the price difference will be different, as I have never seen Corn Islands before. And I have seen BRBs for years. But I do love small island species, however that BRB color is just remarkable too..

Thumbs up Don't Forget....

Vin Russo has Corn Island Boas as well that I'm pretty certain came from Rio Bravo stock so I have to disagree that Gus is the only person to buy from. The article in Reptiles Magazine on insular island species and dwarf boas was written by Vinnie. I agree Gus has super animals but once he sells pairs to others and they in turn breed them the genetics are the same. I've seen these animals from Cutting Edge Herps at the White Plains, NY show fairly recently and can say they are very nice indeed.

I've got a trio of Gus' Corn Islands that I've been raising up. With any luck, I'll get a successful breeding this year. Anyway, Gus' Corn Islands are absolutely stunning. I recommend him to everyone looking for Corn Islands.

That's Great News Mike!

Please put me first in line for a pair of the nicest ones you produce (after your holdbacks of course). You know where to find me LOL.

Greg, I've got my fingers crossed on these guys this year. The male is throwing sperm plugs, but I haven't yet seen any actual breeding yet!
I'm very excited about this group - I've been raising them up for a long time.

When/If I produce any babies - I'll give you a heads up. Chances are, you'll have something I want anyway.

Have a great New years.

greg i do understand where you are coming from but as of last year i only knew of Gus reproducing any... not to say others will not or are not but if you want the real deal you have to be careful whom they come from... of course Vin is reputable, as well as mike (good luck) and the barnetts too but you know as well as i you have to be careful where you get them from to ensure you are not being ripped off... so i appologize to anyone whom might have bred some last year[s] but you can never be too careful when dealing with locality animals
