Hello Frank, I was hoping that you could help me. I am a teacher and three years ago we found a small northern brown snake trying to get in our building. I have always been very fond of snakes so I kept him in my classroom as a class pet for my class. We had him for three years and he flourished. My kids and I adored him. He was healthy and happy and had grown so much! This past January someone stole him. My class and I are devastated . I was wondering if by chance you know of any one who breeds and sells brown snakes or anywhere that I could get another one. Thanks so much fro your time and help!! Michelle
