Yellowtail Cribos are the longest of the Drymarchon genus and have been recorded at lengths of over ten feet. They have a more slender build, and on average, tend to be more defensive than other Drymarchon. They have an extremely large range throughout most of South America and their appearance can be highly variable. Wild caught imports are commonly available in the United States and are generally cheaper that captive bred specimens. However, many imported yellowtails come in heavily parasitized and dehydrated, and people often have difficulty acclimatizing them to captivity.
We are working with several lines of yellowtails. Some of our animals come from wild caught or F1 imports and others come from long-term, captive-bred lineages.
