P melanoleucus lodingi

They aren't solid black, more like 90% as an adult, and they are something I've tried to find before but no luck. Only ever seen 2 for sale in the past, both sold before i got them.

May have to look to one of the continental snake days but always worth asking. Hopefully Al stotton may see this and might know someone.

There are was a discussion about this subspecies a while back. I believe that the general concencus was that there were none in the UK.
Terraristika may be your best bet with their adverts.

Damn, that's what I feared. Last one I saw, even held her, was a cracking mature female, but that was years ago. She was already sold but I got on well with the shop owner so he let me have a look at her.

Have you tried Geoff Clarke? I know he bred some in the last year or two, not sure he still keeps though.

As suggested by Francis , Geoff Clarke may be your only option U.K. wise.

The other option I can suggest is U.S based breeders, here's a relevant link Dani

That's a name from yesteryear!
If he's bred them it's worth a try, even if just to track down the buyers to see if they are breeding.

Sure is , safe to say Geoff is a pioneer of the U.K scene.

We've remained in contact and in fact he had great results with a few pituophis from me , i know he had some lodingi offspring last season.
