Updated Terms of Service.  Please Read!!


*** As of January 1, 2023, we have current availability for unrelated pairs of normal blacktail cribos and red phase Mexican indigos, male unicolor cribos, and piebald mussurana.  The waiting list for 2023 black phase Mexican indigos is OPEN.  If you wish to be added to the Mexican Indigo waiting list, please make sure you agree to all of the terms of service below before proceeding.  Waiting lists for Texas indigos, yellowtail cribos, eastern indigos, axanthic blacktail cribos, and red blacktail cribos remain CLOSED.

*** As of January 24th, 2022, we are temporarily closing down our Priority Waiting List.  The wait is long enough for most subspecies that we need a chance to catch up.  Please do not ask to be added to the waiting list.  Continue checking back here to see when we reopen the list.  If you are already on the list, you are still in line for a snake, and we will get to you as soon as we can.  Thank you for your patience and understanding!

As of January 2020, Black Pearl Reptiles’ Terms of Service will be changing.  Every year, we have motivated buyers miss out on the opportunity to receive animals from us despite waiting long periods of time. In an effort to ensure buyers have a fair chance at receiving animals from us, we are implementing a Priority Waiting List.  


Please read the Terms of Service below carefully.


  • There is a $100 reservation fee to be included on the PWL.

  • The fee is nonrefundable.

  • The $100 will go towards the snake being purchased.

  • Placement on the PWL will be prioritized by when the $100 payment is received.

  • People on the PWL will be offered snakes according to their placement on the list.  We will start offering snakes to people on our waiting list in September of each year.

  • Snakes will be offered as they become available.  Being on the PWL does not guarantee you a snake within a certain time period.  Availability and placement on the list will dictate when snakes will be offered.

  • Repeat customers do not need to pay the $100 fee.  Just let us know you would like to be included on the list.

  • We reserve the right to remove people from the list as we see fit. 

  • Choosing not to buy the snakes once they are offered to you may constitute removal from the PWL without a refund of the reservation fee.  The reservation fee buys you the opportunity to buy the snakes you are looking for at whatever point they become available.  It does not afford you the opportunity to stay on the list indefinitely.

  • If you would like to be added to the PWL, please make sure you have read and agree to all of the above terms.  Please email me to get the payment instructions for the reservation fee. 

Hatchlings will be offered once they are feeding and fully established on unscented rodents.  This process can take a few months.   Your snakes will be shipped Fedex Priority Overnight once the full balance has been received.

A Few Important Notes


*Regarding our eastern indigos... Sales outside California will require a Federal Interstate Commerce Permit.  It costs $100 and involved a 2-3 month wait.  I will help you with the process.  My contact list for easterns is very long.  You may want to consider Mexican Redtail Indigos or Texas Indigos as an alternative.  Neither require permits... Some states require additional permits to legally possess Eastern Indigos.  We will not ship Eastern Indigos to these states without the required permits.  We work with over two dozen different adult snakes produced by a host of different breeders.  We will provide as much information as we can on the sire and the dam of your snake.  If you wish to purchase multiple eastern indigos, we should be able to provide you with snakes from different lineages.  All of our breeder eastern indigos have been DNA tested and have been paired to optimize genetic diversity.
