    Don't get me wrong Rich, I know Boa's can be pretty chill, especially as they get bigger. Behira, is pretty chill most of the time now, although she has her active moments (they are still quite manageable as she is easily redirected and hardly wild or crazy - like Figment ), but she is literally 9X Feliz's size and more than 2X his age. She's also had over a year of regular and gentle handling with me and quite a bit with the breeder before then.

    Feliz had limited handling with the breeder and is still young and tiny. WOW! According to the breeder, he's been like this since birth! Most of the Venezuelan BCC are. Even over the past week or so of gentle bonding, we've begun building a little trust and he's getting a little braver and confident, but I wouldn't say calmer. He's been chill as can be from day one.

    I have to say that his demeanor has totally blown me away and stolen my heart. As an aside, Solana too. She's so calm and chill and so unlike any young corn snake I've ever handled. I lucked out big time with those two!

    As they grow into adults, they are both going to be great snakes and great snakes to show people who are curious and ambivalent about snakes/reptiles. They will both be incredible reptile ambassadors, I can tell already.

    That's so great, hopefully when yafe is better he will be nice and relaxed too, I agree with the corn thing your very lucky indeed, they normally pretty fast and really don't keep still as you say

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    Feliz ate Sunday and came out tonight for some more bonding. I think we both like handling time, but I am not sure he needs more to get him comfortable with it. He's the chillest and calmest snake I have. They are all friendly and Behira, my female Ghost BCI, is about as friendly and outgoing as can be, but Feliz is noticeably less active then her. He's downright compliant.

    Anyway, I got some pictures of him with my DSLR in good light and a background that shows of his colors and contrast well.

    He's really stunning, but I'll let you determine that for yourselves.

    Also, a quick video of some tongue flicks and although in and out of focus (iPhone), there a few good shots of his two tone mahogany eyes. Breathtaking, if I do say so myself.

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Thanks Reinz. Not only is he gorgeous, he is quickly becoming one of my favorite snakes to handle. He's getting up their with Behira. He's curious and brave and inquisitive and calm and chill, etc. However, he is just so incredibly calm and chill. He really is amazingly calm for such a tiny thing. I am blown away with his demeanor.

    I am loving my boas!

    Feliz had his first small/weaned mouse tonight (15G). He was 140G dry this week.

    He a great feeder. He does not hesitate. BAM!
