What can I say about these amazing animals…..this was my first pet boid ever. I got my first boa at age 15, and she was definitely what caused my great addiction and love for boas and pythons. Boas come in an endless variety of color and pattern morphs. The first time I saw an albino boa in the classifieds section of Vivarium magazine I just about had a heart attack and knew one day I would have that snake.
Now we have some mind blowing examples of the species in our collection. Most of our animals are great to work with, fun to watch and interact with. These can make great display animals as well.
Males tend to be smaller, and some of the Hypo (Panamanian) and other dwarf forms may not even exceed 4’ and stay very slender…..hence making them great pets.
