I can't imagine anyone being that busy. You _always_ hear stories about how Don is so nice on the phone, and will spend lots and lots of time with a customer. I certainly know he does by e-mail. Same thing with Rich when he was in business. Certainly the people at Rio Bravo can't be busier/"more important" than those two examples of large breeding operations. Or look at Sean Niland, VMS, that has a photo of every single animal right down to the normal cornsnakes!

You should send them an e-mail saying you'll take your $50, add it to your snake budget and go shop somewhere else!

I just got in contact with rus, and already ive gotten much better service. I ended up calling ed Lilley up at constrictors NW to make sure I had the right email for the rio-bravo people! I was so worried I had a scalper! But as it goes, the search continues!

thats exactly what I said! I told them " sorry for apparently being such a bother but i will do business else where"

I even explained why I wanted pictures. I only have 4 snakes right now, this would be my 5th. Im SUPER picky about what I get and I really have to "fall in love" with the animals I get. Either way now though, Im still shopping around. Ive stumbled upon the patternless boas of MainleyBoas, and man those are amazing but lord only knows how expensive they are ha! Thankfully though, not having a lot of snakes, I am usually willing to pay, a reasonable bit more.

Wow, RioBravo just lost any "small peanuts" money I would think to spend on one of their Suri locale boas. That's unacceptable

Something my mom taught me, if you want my money BE NICE!!! I will not give my hard earned money to some one who is going to treat me badly and be short with me.

Perhaps you should see if Rio Bravo has a page on the bio. You could add your experience there for people in the future who may run into the same experience as you.

Probably not BOI-worthy. They didn't do anything "wrong," just money-grubbing poor customer service...

yeah i dont think i wnat to take them to the BOI but it just didnt even seem like they wanted to sell a snake. Either way though I ended up finding one from Vin at cutting edge and it is just as beautiful! AND i got pics of the parents which makes me feel a lot better about the quality of snake that I will be getting!
