    Theres a few breeders in cali !Id guess only about 15 breeders in the united states that's realy out there being serious to breed these.There not like boas or pythons,but cali has more breeders then any state.Problem is find good strong specimens that are genetically diverse,they been federal protected since the 70s so new blood for captivity just isn't there.Inbreeding has become a issue and shows.They roam such big areas in the wild as there always hungry,so inbreeding in the wild just isn't in there DNA.Well we started it for them.,Its a pet for me so im not fixed on the inbreed genetics as long as its healthy.

    Being the good snake forum guy I am,ill tell anybody that's interested in these that I believe the most focused guy on producing easterns that are as genetically diverse as possible is a guy named Alan Brutosky in New jersey.If I was breeding these id for sure buy atlease one of the animals from alan to get a good chance at mixing the genes.Mines a pet and I got a good deal in my state.Time-space only lets me do a little suriname breeding and my suri is here to stay.

    Super cool. Mine were nearly 2 years old when I got them, so they both had some size already.

    I agree that finding a good breeder working with as diverse as possible stock is key. Alan B. you named is good. Steve Binnig from Philly area and John Michels from Cali, Steve Fuller from Conn. They say to look at the scales on the tail. Split scales on the tail are thought to indicate a lack of genetic diversity.

    Love to see some updates of him. Now that it's summer and I have some time, I'll get some new pics up of my two.

    My easterns blood is binning X bruce,mine has a few weird scales,not bad but few are split.but I got a good deal and hes healthy doing great and im not breeding him at all for sure.Hes a pet!From my research, I think alan B works with the best breeder quailty easterns in the US and steve fuller is second.Breeding suri is all I got time for,and one adult eastern is all I think my little house can take cause they stink.My little snake room is right next to my front door and living room.I like snakes but don't want to smell them unless I open there door.LOL.heres how that would go.........15 adult suri.......a 15 baby suri litter........2 adult easterns..........a 7 litter baby easterns and me looking in want adds for a place to live cause my girl wouldn't deal with the smell.LOL

    Cool Skip!
    I have a couple friends in town that have them. Males. The breeders don't let females go cheap if at all.
    One thing that jumped out at me about them is how big their tongues are. I guess a snake with a big tongue is more of a hunter than an ambusher.?
