    All my Candoia

    Ok, so they aren't all "tree boas," but I wanted to group all the Candoia together.
    Solomon Island Tree Boas (Candoia bibroni australis)
    A breeding group with the female being the darkest and largest. She may already be gravid. The male in the second photo has some great reds.

    Very cool and unusual looking snakes! They really blend in with their habitat.

    Re: All my Candoia

    ballpythonluvr and Monster Dodge: I've had them in naturalistic cages before and they were almost impossible to spot. They really camouflage perfect with natural wood and twigs...very much sit and wait predators and don't move very much.

    Boanerges: You should look into getting some...they are never aggressive (aside from my prego Candoia), only need to eat once a month, stay super small, and are one of the rarer ones you'll find....a great boa to keep

    Re: All my Candoia

    TheWinWizard ~ The best place I've been able to find them is on Kingsnake (most are wild caught) or at a reptile expo (also most wild caught) Surprisingly in both cases I've never found any with mites. I should also be producing a couple small litters in 9-10 months (C. c. carinata and C. b. australis)

    Keep in mind though, w/c can be big pains in the a$$ with feeding. My C. c. carinata will only eat lizards.

    I see, thank you for being honest. They are beautiful snakes though.
