    Tirel, Ghost Boa

    This is one of my two new arrivals! She's a poss super ghost 66% het albino, born 5/27/15. I bought her from Dave Green at Green Constrictors. He was easy to work with and gave me several updates on her. There was a bit of a mix up on schedules when it came time to ship, causing me to wait an extra week, but there were no other delays and she got here safely.


    Like Morzan, she came out of the bag swinging. Snapped at my face a couple of times, and eyed my hand if I made any movement, but I didn't get bit and she wasn't overly intent on murdering me. lol Slightly more laid back than Morzan.


    She's a lot bigger than my other June 2015 girl Nymeria, already on small rats, roughly 3' long. I'm ordering a shipment of rodents here in a couple of weeks, since Nymeria is moving up and I need to get smalls for Bud, so for her first feeding she'll get a jumbo mouse but by her next feeding I should have the proper rats in. I'm thinking of giving her a weaned rat first before going straight to smalls since I like to feed a bit smaller, but I'll see how the rats look when they get here. She's definitely going to be fed every 2-3 weeks since she's a year and on the larger side of average, and I'll try her on a mouse next Thursday.


    The other new arrival is an anery motley 66% het albino male, and he should be here Tuesday. The weather in Texas delayed his shipment, otherwise he'd be here with her.

    I find the ghost gene very interesting in how it effects tails and it's different snake to snake.

    Beautiful snake!

    Grats, nice boa. I'm debating on trying to catch one of Vin Russo's pure Hog Islands when his female has babies this year. Figure I'll have 2 smaller cages laying around as I just ordered 2 AP T10s which should be here in 3 months Hopefully the Hog females doesn't baby by then as I've been told, he sells out of them pretty freakin quick as they are purebreds. If not, I've been eyeballing one of Nick Muttons jungle carpets since I've never had a carpet python.

    Thanks everyone! She's a bit more distrusting than my other snakes but I guess she's pretty enough to forgive. lol

    Empty cages are the #1 way to convince yourself to get more. lol

    Do you know when she was bred? Gestation is only ~106 days, so 3 months is nearly the entire gestation period, minus a couple weeks. She could hold onto her babies for awhile but that would be cutting it kinda close. I take it he wouldn't have a wait list since they're in such high demand?



    Well, I went ahead and fed Tirel since I'm working tomorrow, and it's only a day early. The jumbo mouse was bigger compared to her than I though it would be, so weaned rats may actually be perfect for her for awhile yet.

    @Cloudtheboa. Yeah he isn't doing a wait list or pre purchase option since they are in high demand from him. I guess he has people who are still trying to catch one from his last go round. It seems you gotta catch em when they go up for sale and be fast or lose out and have to wait until the next round lol. But like I said, that's just one option. I got a few "maybes" going on. Like maybe one of the lavender albino SD/D retics from Vital Exotics or one of Nick Muttons Jungle Carpets or maybe search around for a male motley 100% het kahl albino boa to possibly breed to Vicky the sunglow when she gets old enough and shoot for some motley sunglows. No real rush though as I got months until the AP cages here and then I gotta set them up and let everyone get settled in before I go shopping lol. I've also really been wanting a GTP but the quarantine/temp cages that will be vacant aren't set up for a GTP so I would have to start from scratch. Not to mention the price for CBB GTPs as they aren't cheap from breeders unless you roll the dice on a farm hatched one which I was told is not the way to go for a first GTP.
