    Oh, I wasn't trying to say that I buy into that notion. Nics are beautiful (yours especially so!) and I'm sure that with appropriate care and handling they're just as tame as any other boa. But I have heard that Hog Islands can be exceptionally docile, even for boas, which is appealing as I tend to enjoy handling sessions longer than do any of my snakes. One reason I need more.

    The real problem with boas is that there are so many choices!

    I understand! I just thought it's hard when pretty much everything that comes up to do with Nics seem to be negative, at least that's what my experience was - I'm glad I trusted the store employee who told me otherwise. I'm sure Hogs are great, there must be a reason they're popular!

    I totally agree that there's so many options, though. If I'd known about BCLs and other locality boas I would've had a much harder time deciding.

    Short of looking for another snake to add to the collection, you don't need to re-think your decision one bit. Your snake is absolutely beautiful!!
    Too Many...

    That's what my wife says

    Your Nic is gorgeous Caravaggiooo. I've gotten 2 boas recently and I'm pretty fascinated with mine too. I'm waiting for my BCI to shed any day now. Keep the pics coming please.

    Thank you all so much! I'm glad I'm sharing him here because I honestly think I've become even happier with him than if I hadn't. The positive vibes here are great and I hope I can keep posting updates for years to come

    This isn't really an update, but I wanted to share! I commissioned an artist called Cold-Blooded Creations on fb to make a mini version of Rembrandt and I'm really pleased with what I got. I needed a keychain and wanted something extra special

    Of course!!! she was very nice to order from and deserves all her business! The price + shipping to Canada was a bit steep but I think it was worth it to have a personalized trinket like this

    again not much to report, but I had him out today and I noticed that his head is sloooowly growing into the adult boa shape! (emphasis on "slowly") I think, I honestly can't be sure haha.



    comparison with a shot from July:

    It's been a while, there hasn't been much to report! Rembrandt has been eating like a champ (but still shyly, always in his hide) and I think he's put on some girth. He just gave me his second shed with me in one piece







    Oh! And I've actually moved Remby to a PVC cage a couple weeks ago because I was starting to have trouble maintaining temps in the colder weather. I was worried it's huge for him but I've cluttered it the best I can and he hasn't stopped eating or anything, so I think he's fine in there.

    (can I just say, wow RHPs are fantastic!)

    unfortunately the cage has become the cat's favourite place to hang out because of course
