    Re: So I have been offered a pair of Tree Boas.....

    His words.

    "I have had them about 3 to 4 months and they were WC/farm raised guatemalan imports. They have had 2 rounds of dewormer and have been treated for mites. I work for an exotics shop and bought a group of them when they came in that I liked."

    "Alot of amazons are still WC to add in new blood to projects. These are brand new lines. I have a pair of killer reds breeding currently."

    Successive generations of CBB have not resulted in 'tamer' ATBs. Some are more tolerant than others but that's true of any snake. They are simply a nippy type of snake.

    Not sure what you mean by this? They don't go through a color change like ETB and GTP do
    Their markings will usually get darker and muddier, some reds will fade to orange, some banded yellow/oranges will have the orange get darker, but it's not the same type of color change those others go through.

    that's a silly thing for him to say IMO.
    They are super cheap to import is what it is, we don't *need* more wc

    Was going to ask if they are ATBs or ETBs but reading your latest post, i see you said 'garden' color which means they are ATBs. You do know they dont get that green of ETBs or nearly as large. They are completely different beasts although share the same 'tree boa' name.

    Me personally, i have never really been interested in ATBs but i do like ETBs. Only thing i never really cared about them though are their bigger heads. For some reason, their heads dont look as pretty as GTP heads...but thats just me lol.

    Also, ATBs are rather easy to find so unless you are getting a screamin deal, you could easily find some later.

    If you pick them up, of course QT them and take a fecal in to the vet.

    Personally, I would much rather have a GTP or ETB over an ATB like i stated, but thats just me. Now if you were getting an Amazon Basin ETB, i would say jump on that like a fat kid on a twix as those are harder to find, more desirable but also considerably more cash lol.

    Free. He said he has 2 adults that stayed orange and are breeding size. He is just needing another pair to breed and they are not pets for him. More like cattle.

    Up to you then but know that will be 2 more mouths to feed and care for and if you are looking for something like a GTP or ETB like you have said you wanted, these ATBs will not fit the bill. They dont color change the same as GTPs and ETBs.

    Itís really up to you in the end but my vote is wait. Slow down and focus on your snakes now as you already have a sizable collection that you havenít even owned for a year yet. There will be many more opportunities in the future for sure, so no need rush. Sometimes itís better to think with your head instead of your heart.

    ^ It's always better to think with your head than your heart when it comes to whether or not you should be purchasing multiple new animals in such a short amount of time.

    No offense to anyone who likes them, but personally I wasn't fond of them... meaner than an ebt and not nearly as pretty... only thing they have going for them is they are cheap as dirt. Up to you, but I would pass.
