    Thanks Rich.

    The pictures and my description cannot adequately display or describe the depth of his color and sharpness of his pattern, or the intense contrast between it all.

    I am in awe.

    Thank you! As you can probably see if you watch my unboxing video, I was shocked at how amazing he looks! When I spoke to the breeder today to let him know he got here okay, etc, he said he thinks he's going into shed soon and seems dull to him! I can't wait to see him after shed, whenever that is.

    I had no idea they existed either! There are some smaller Boas out there. I think the Peruvian Long Tails stay noticeably smaller than most locale BCC's, but don't quote me on it.

    There is one other breeder in the country, Mike something, who apparently produced a clutch last year as well. They are the only two actively breeding these guys that I am aware of anyway. Very rare line and locale. Amazingly gorgeous, amazingly calm and docile, and also curious and brave. He was in his hide for 2 minutes and then out exploring for two hours. Then he left me a butt bomb and has been in a hide since. Katie just got home and the bomb is too big to ignore. She can meet him quick while I clean his tank. Then he will be left alone for a bit.

    I digressed. I recently ordered Vin Russo's "Complete Boa Constrictor," The Bible on Boas, or at least one of them. It's out of print now, but I found a used copy on amazon. Anyway, he has a total of 4 pages in the book on Venezuelan Boas. 2+ pages on the Paraguana Venezuelan Boa and about 1 1/2 pages (with pictures - so two paragraphs) on the Venezulean BCC (that Feliz is) he refers to as a true red tail. He says they are very hardy, but rare. Also thicker bodied than most Boas.

    He was produced last year and was a holdback. Tommy (from TC Reptile where I got him) had two male holdbacks. One had a more interesting pattern (pictured at the beginning of this thread with the dog bone on his tail) and Feliz, who had the best coloring. He decided to hold back the odd patterned one and sell me Feliz. I can't argue on the coloration at all.

    ^ You're welcome! Honestly, if I'd known about these boas beforehand (and if they're even attainable in my country), I would've had a hard time settling on another snake. BCCs are so cool but they're way out of my size range, so I would've jumped at a dwarf variety! It's a pity they're so uncommon, but that makes them all the more special too.

    The Complete Boa Constrictor is on my wishlist but I haven't been able to find one for a decent price here, I don't know if I ever will! If I owned it I would've known about Venezuelan BCCs already

    Anyways I can't wait to see more progress pics of Feliz! If he's supposed to be looking dull now...

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    Katie met Feliz today while I cleaned the mess he made. She was shocked how much poop came out of such a little guy (she almost never sees snake poop as I always clean it and usually when she's either holding the culprit or at work).

    In any event, they totally hit it off! She thinks he's beautiful and a sweetie. No argument on either from me.

    He back settled in his tank and will be left alone for a bit. I plan to offer food Sunday when I feed everyone else. If he really starts looking, I might offer Friday, but we will see.

    We are both relieved he arrived on time and he seems like an awesome guy!
