Wanting to get into Rosy Boas... looking for input.

So Ive never kept rosy boas, but they've interested me over the years. Ive finally decided to get a small group. I was curious to know is their a specific locale that is recommended over others to work with? Are morphs non locale specific usually? Or do you find them fairly well kept within their specific lineage/ location.

Any recommended resources would be appreciated as well.

As to specific locale, I would think that whatever you like the looks of would be a good starting point. Some locales are more in demand than others, but considering how long it takes to grow out breeders (roughly five years), popularity will possibly have changed.

I will say that I enjoy my trivs (Ajo) much more than my coastals (Anza Borrego), mostly because I do not like being bitten.

As to local-specific morphs: some are associated with only one locale, e.g. hypo Borregos. I suspect many of the albinos have been outcrossed to other morphs unless a trusted breeder can stand behind the lineage of their animals.

Thanks. I'm going to have to do some research on appearances I think to narrow down some locales I would like to keep. I do like the chocolaty striping the Ajo have. They definitely are some I'm going to be interested in.

I personally like the coastals with the more diffuse striping of greys, blue/greys and browns over the ones that have the more hard edged, higher contrast striping. I'm probably in the minority here, but that is my 2 cents.
