    Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    We got our first Boa yesterday!

    She's a 2016 (so about 1 1/2 years old) Ivory Ghost BCI.

    She is incredibly docile and calm, and quite beautiful. We named her Behira because it means "light" and "clear" in Hebrew.

    She's a lighter morph and her eyes are bright blue-grey.

    Inserted is a picture I took of her as well as photos from the breeder. I will get more, and better photos up soon.

    We can't wait to watch her grow! We will update!

    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    We got her from BoaKings, a small breeder in NY.

    We live in CT and wanted to meet the breeder and snake before purchase. He (Gil) was great and worked with us to make sure we got a docile animal. That was our top priority. She is a 2016, not a 2017, but was the temperament we wanted and we loved the morph. She is young enough we can still watch her grow, but old enough that she is pretty tough and sturdy.

    We had narrowed in down to 2 animals and settled on her. Being a smaller breeder, Gil really knew the animals personalities and was able to point us in the right direction.

    I really cannot say enough about how awesome she is and how helpful Boakings was.

    Quick update.

    Today was feeding day for the snakes and I decided to offer food to Behira as well. Worst case, if she didn't eat, and was still settling in, I'd try again in a few days.

    SHE ATE LIKE A CHAMP!

    I am very happy. She seems to be settling in nicely!

    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    Behira has eaten 3 times and we have had her for 2 1/2 weeks now. We feed every 7 days right now, and have been giving about 50G weaned rats. She can take bigger, but I wanted to start her off small. She's 499G as of today (and about 3 feet), but is due to poop, so probably a little less. Either way, may start on 60-65G small rats soon. All frozen thawed.

    In the meantime, I can see her growing! She's getting bigger by the day.

    Here are some pics. I am blown away by the light and dark phases she goes through in a day.

    Just had a soak!

    Quick update. Behira had her first shed with us today. She looks beautiful (pics coming soon, probably tomorrow).

    Until her "ideal setup" comes in a couple of weeks from boaphile, I have her in a tank that is good for humidity, not bad like a screen top, but not great either. So I have been misting and soaking her daily.

    She had a perfect shed! 2 eye caps and all in one piece. Awesome!

    Here are pics, as promised, fresh after shedding. She dropped some massive waste and now weighs 464 grams.

    Beautiful girl! I just recently got one of my own who appears to be roughly the same age. Looking forward to seeing both of ours grow and progress.
