No local herp rescue groups? I would think it's cheaper to buy from local breeders then to pay for shipping. Maybe im just not the trusting type. But you don't give your name or location. You post the same thing twice. Something just doesn't sound right to me. Buy your kid a snake. what's a garter snake or a cornsnake cost?

Reminds me a bit of the lady who wanted a free Leadbeater's Cockatoo for her boyfriend, who wanted one but couldn't afford it. As if someone is going to give a $5,000 bird away to some random stranger on the Net. Probably someone is looking for stock to resell.

Since when does 4-H do ANYTHING regarding reptiles?

They did when I was in 4H back in the 70's.
The county fair had a 4H reptile display every fall and the care of herps was part of the 4H curriculum.

There's a few groups that are doing more exotic animals these days, in my area, for example, there's a parrot 4-H group. It wouldn't surprise me if there was a reptile one. It would surprise me, if I thought the OP was real, that someone in a 4H was looking for a free reptile online. I think it would be far more likely for the group to be affiliated with the local herp club, and would therefore have access to rescues or at least affordable babies. A leopard gecko or a cornsnake doesn't cost that much, and they would be perfect 4H animals, IMO.

Weird. Here, 4-H is primarily farm animals, dogs, cats and rabbits. That's it.

I always thought it was a farm thing too.
