Luckily, Pat is pretty happy on a perch so i can just prop it up somewhere and he is happy lol.
    Thanks Sauzo!

    She's doing great.

    I love your guys too and all their different personalities.

    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    Behira left me a bunch of urine and urate and a little poop. She weighed in at 965G, but I bet she's a little less and still has some poop left in her. Either way, she's getting fed another small rat on Sunday.

    She's still doing great. Beautiful and sweet and brave. Good news: Katie say she really likes Behira now. Bad news: Katie says that the new scaleless sunglow motley corn snake hatchling, Solana (all of 8G), might be her new favorite. Frankly, I'll take it. After Behira nailed me back in February, she was not on Katie's "like" list at all. Katie was nervous she was aggressive and that we should consider not keeping her. Took a good week or two to get that off her mind and another few months of hook training to get Katie to totally calm down. I adore Behira. Does she still nail the acrylic doors sometimes when expecting food? Yes, but that's who she is and that's her feed response. I have accepted it and know that she means now harm; she just gets really excited. I try to feed her as quickly as possible and avoid her striking at anything but the rat, but it doesn't always work. Alas, I guess I just have to deal with her "eccentric' and excited food response. I can deal with that if it means having such a wonderful snake. I think Katie is on board with that too, and that makes me happy.

    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    I met B&N Reptiles and the female sunglow BCI that produced the baby sunglows they were selling at the Manchester NH Reptile Expo today (6-24-18).

    She was beautiful and docile and predictable. They were kind enough to let me hold her for a few minutes. She is 16 pounds and about 6 1/2 - 7FT or so. Basically the size Behira will be when full grown (give or take).

    I haven't really discussed it, and it's not a huge issue, but I was a little intimidated about how big Behira is going to get. My biggest snake to date is Shayna my 1,600 gram female Albino Spider BP.

    Other than BP's, I have kept corn snakes in the past. Hardly intimidating at 3-5 feet and 1-1.5 pounds.

    I wanted a BCI for many reasons, but I had originally wanted a male BCI because of size. However, Katie and I fell in love with Behira and I liked the challenge of a female; go big or go home!

    After holding this girl, I am totally cool about Behira now. Behira will be a big, beautiful, gentle, giant, just like this girl. Docile and easy to manage. Not a one hander, but easy to drape over my shoulders and redirect when necessary, etc.

    I am glad I went to the show and met this big momma and now have complete peace of mind about Behira. Totally worth going to the show just for that! However, also so some very cool stuff, but being full up on animals right now, was disciplined and brought home nothing!

    I've sort of taken the same approach in that I'm trying to get a full understanding on how big these snakes are going to get. While the BOA in the picture is absolutely stunning, it's a little more then I want to take on...especially the girth. Can I assume this is a normal size for a BCI adult? Or are males considerably smaller? I think I'm partial to the size that Behira is now (at least from the pictures you've been posting).

    Re: Behira - 2016 Female Ivory Ghost - First BCI

    The size of that really nice sunglow is about the normal size for a bci,

    The males are generally smaller mine are, except my six year old albino jungle called Jim who is 7ft .he was over fed for years and for the past year have had him on once a month feed instead of the xl rat he was given every two weeks
    My 4 year old motley is about the same size as behira .which is a great size as
    you say
    Locality bci are a lot slimmer

    They had the adult male breeder there too. He had to weigh half as much, if not less, than the female. My guess is he was 1-2FT shorter and 1/2 the girth.

    Male BCI are usually much smaller than female BCI. Key word there is usually.

    Richardhind1972 is correct that if you want to stay small, you need to go with a dwarf locality Boa.

    Also, from what I have heard and seen, that female Sunglow in the picture is about right for an adult female BCI, give or take.

    Hahah.....I'm not worried about handling it. It's the thought of entertaining the conversation w/ my wife when I tell her I'm going to get my 2nd snake which is "slightly" bigger then our BP
