    Thanks for the info dakski! about the single channel bit you mentioned, do you mean you can plug 2 heating devices into, say, a Herpstat 1?

    great news! Rembrandt shed, I've been waiting for days but found out today that he'd been sitting on it inside his hide for who knows how long!



    One piece with eyecaps present, I'm really happy my very first snake shed went well

    Thanks everyone. These are the first pics I got since he's shed - I don't know if I'm noticing a big difference in his colour but I think he's looking pretty snazzy

    Great read. I just got a Boa so I can relate to these experiences. He really looks great. The pattern and coloring from each snake always blows me away and yours is no exception. Very beautiful.

    Re: Rembrandt - Nicaraguan Boa (first snake!)

    He's wicked pretty overall, but that tail! Wow! Such a gorgeous red and white contrast. I'm getting dangerously close to getting a boa myself (if my new AP T8 ever arrives!). I'm torn between a Nic, like your's, and a Hog island. Love the colors of the Nic, but I've heard Hogs can't be beat temperament-wise.

    Keep the updates coming!

    Iíve heard of plenty of hoggs been aggressive as well, my 3year old Hypo nic has been fine and a much better colour than any Hogg

    Thanks!! As you know this guy is my only snake so I can't offer any comparison, but for the past 2.5~ months he's been a dream! I've talked about this before here - I'm glad I wasn't scared away by the prevailing notion that Nics are aggressive; Rembrandt has never shown any sign of striking and he's more shy than moody, but still stretches out to explore when he's taken out. I'd say if the breeder/seller can vouch for the snake's personality a Nic can be fantastic. Personally, I like that they're less commonly kept, they're so underrated! I hope you'll join the boa club soon!
