I used to breed very high end boas. Had a facility with a lot of boas in it. I was a licensed importer/exporter and I sent them all over the world. Had to stop after 911 when the government shut down shipping. It took over a year to start shipping again. Also had a fire in 02/2001 that wiped us out completely. Had over $300000 in reptiles destroyed and completely destroyed everything I owned. Everyone one of us escaped the fire, I had five kids then, seven now. Lost all of all of my reptiles, lots of one of a kind reptiles, cats, dog, kittens, lizards (lost the original blue tegus from Ron St Pierre), rabbit, everything!!!
Could have been worse though. Count my blessings everyday. Love my shrimp now though. Have a blast breeding them.
