Below is a list of L. alterna breeders who have provided locality data/family tree for all localities claimed

If you want real locality alterna, ask your breeder for a Pedigree. If your breeder can not, or will not offer this service tracing the origin of their stock back to wild caught animals, then the animals in question can only be deemed generic. There are some serious practical considerations that make lineage-sharing imperative, among them is the proliferation of various "morphs".

To become a member of this list you are required to submit photos, locality data, and a family tree tracing the origin of your stock back to wild-caught snakes without exception. If said locality alterna are three generations removed from the wild, you are required to document all three generations in the lineage (i.e. sire and dam, grand sire(s) and dam(s), great grand sire(s) and dam(s).

ALL the data must be in order for your request to be processed. I will also need your REAL NAME in your first inquiry if you are serious about being listed, as well as your city, state, preferred method of contact, and web address if you have a web page.

Please note that this list does not and can not verify data. All we ask is that breeders create a paper trail documenting the lineage of their locality alterna. Buyers are encouraged to use due diligence, ask questions, and seek opinions from several different sources before investing in ANY captive bred locality offspring.

You can be removed from this list if your contact information falls out of date, after three complaints, or if you falsify/do not have documentation.

The Alterna Page receives no renumeration for inclusion in this list.
