    My new pet! (in a few years she'll be about 8 feet and close to 50 lbs) She's a baby Red Tail Boa. It's hard to place her ancestry but she's got the colorings of a peruvian red tail boa. Anyways here's some pics. We ended up naming her Sapphire.

    Exploring

    Not huge but she sure is curious.

    She's got good grip for her age. (sorry my whiteness washed out the pic :eek:)

    Nose to tail she's about 18-20 inches or so.

    Her tank. Hot side is on the right currently at 91* for basking. Ambient temperature of aroun 82*
    [​IMG]

    Small under tank heater in the corner and her climbing branch in the other corner. Her hide out is the half log.

    Her other climbing stick and her water/bathing bowl.

    Snakes are awesome, our neighbors had a lot of different species of boa constrictors, I remember watching them as a little kid and how they fascinated the **** outta me.

    Requested it early enough for it not to be annoying yet. And there's a sticky about it at the top of OT.

    I used to have ball pythons and whatnot as a kid and loved them. Right now I live in a rented room in a house so I cant really own anything but once I move out I will probally get myself a snake too.

    Nice Boa....I have a red tail and a Ball Python. They grow so quick at that age. Do you plan on feeding live or frozen?

    She's been feed frozen for her whole life so i'm gonna keep feeding her frozen. I used to have a ball python and i fed him live but he'd get bitten every once in a while and i dont want that to happen to her.
