BRBs are my favorite species of snakes and part of my future breeding plans. I currently have a pair and love them. BRBs are one of the most underated and overlooked species out there sadly. Of course most species are these days with the whole ball python craze. They seem to get a bad rap for being mean bitey snakes but thats not really true at all. I have 2 and they are just as freindly as my corns if not more so. The whole mean rumor comes from wild caught ones but captive bred ones are not bad at all. Stay away from wild caught ones. There are several good breeders out there and you will be much happier with a nice CB one. BRBs are not reccomended for begginers because they require specific temps and hummidity and are not as forgiving as some other species if they dont have the right conditions. If you have kept a few snakes and want a snake thats beauty is second to none then a BRB is for you.
