    Great photo Dave, looks so great,love his pink cheeks

    Was so glad you managed to get that little guy from behind the rhp no problems, boas are just mad for exploring, I've had my sunglow round the LED light stripe so many times when she was little , she was a nightmare, thankfully she's grown out of it

    Rich, he's freaking adorable!

    I was very relieved as well. However, I've had a kidney transplant, I race cars and I have had a transmission failure and hit the wall at almost 100mph (started spinning at 100mph), I have a high stress job in finance, etc. I have learned to stay calm in high stress and risky situations. He was also surprisingly cooperative. It worked out. It will also NOT happen again . Not in this tank, and definitely not is his new Boaphile.

    Young boas can be sneaky and annoying little suckers!

    Thank you, as always, for the comments.

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    A few more photos and a video I uploaded today. He's really so chill and calm, especially for a yearling, who hasn't been handled much. He's going to be a total sweetheart, just like Behira, if not even more chill (if that's possible), once he has a year plus of gentle handling and building trust under his belt.

    I can't wait to see his food response though. I bet it's pretty epic, just like his sister, Behira, who is also a total sweetie. We will see on Tuesday. Give him time to settle in and that's when everyone else is getting fed in the next week (usually Sunday, but work messed things up this week).

    Video Link of the calm boy. I love how he keeps checking out the phone - "Oh, What's This? I've never seen this before! Can I taste it? I'm gonna taste it!"

    I believe we recently had another member who advised that we were terrible enablers.

    Yep, he sure is a purdy Boa! His skin does look a little loose when he curls up a bit and his belly looks like it might be starting to get a little pink. Barely, but he might be shedding in the near-term. I am scared. How much more striking looking and more vibrant can he be? The contrast has got to be incredible after shed! I cannot wait!

    What? Me? Making you want a Venezuelan True Red Tail/BCC like Feliz? Why? It's not like he's beautiful, or adorable, or totally sweet, or anything like that. Nope, just your typical little noodle. Nothing to see here. I know not what you speak of Bogertophis. Strange, normally we are on the same page.

    Again, no idea what you or Bogertophis are talking about Dianne. Maybe you can PM, or post in more detail here, and explain it better?

    I think it comes down to hes such a pretty boa, and a Bcc, and will stay a more moderate size, and and and....we want one!

    Oh, now I get it!

    Those reasons, and his incredibly calm nature, is why I bought him!



    Katie already adores him too. She even took him out on her own. Last time he was out, she said, "I love him." He loves her too, as do I. Made me very happy. He's really a cute, beautiful, outgoing, but calm and sweet, little noodle!

    Well, if you guys are really interested, I'll get you in touch with Tommy at TC Reptile and you can get on the wait list for the next litter. He's really unbelievable, I cannot argue that.

    I am lucky Tommy had him has a holdback and was willing to sell him. I am also lucky Tommy and I hit it off and got to talking reptiles and Boas even though I had gotten Yafe. He just happened to mention Venezuelan BCC's in passing, since I had said I wasn't really looking. However, when I heard "Dwarf," "BCC," and "calm and docile as can be," all in the same sentence........well, I wasn't missing that. NO WAY, NO HOW! Tommy, you said what? Dwarf BCC with a calm demeanor and you have one left? Check, please! Box that bad boy up!
