    Nicaraguan boas

    I thought I'd share some pics of my two female Nicaraguan boas,
    There pretty much the same same age bar 2 months but very different from each other.
    The more orange one is my hypo mainland Nicaraguan who was 3 in June she's great and got such fantastic colours on her and really highly speckled, she pretty much fully grown.
    The darker red one is from the corn islands just off the coast of Nicaraguan often called the fire bellied Nicaraguan for obvious reasons, she's seems to have a lot finer scales and totally different to the mainland nics

    There's been a few people on here buy new nics and I thought I'd show them some adults

    Thank you for the great photos! It's been surprisingly tough to find clear images of Nics, especially full grown ones, so this is really nice. Both of them are gorgeous, I especially like the darkness of the corn island girl though!

    It's also helpful to see how they are girth-wise, they really do seem quite a bit slimmer than common BCIs, which I like. I can't wait until my boy gets a bit bigger, he's cute at his current size but I want more snake

    Thanks caravaggiooo and Wayne
    I just took the pics on me phone

    I too struggled to get some proper pics of adult Nicaraguans when I was contemplating getting them ,there very underrated thatís for sure very rarely over 5ft decent colour and 100% pure locality and donít get as thick as most peopleís wrist
    Most people forget about them when discussing dwarf boas

    Re: Nicaraguan boas

    Very nice Richard... Seems like there are not a lot of Nic's owners on here. I personally like your girl with the brighter colors. What are their names? Or do you not name your snakes because you have a lot. Thank you for sharing, I enjoy seeing all of the pics you post..

    Re: Nicaraguan boas

    Honestly I don't know anything about nicaraguan boas but I love the colour change from head to toe (tail in there case) they look beautiful. Hopefully one day I'll venture out from just ball pythons and looking at them I think I've found what I'd one day eventually get.

    Beautiful snakes! How docile are they? Iíve been thinking about getting a dwarf boa but Iíve heard nics can be somewhat more aggressive than other boas.

    Damn those are nice and so interesting.

    Underrated locales in the BC for sure.
