    She'd look amazing on a black background !!

    Maybe you could photoshop the background to black ( unless someone's watching and does it for you )

    My collection has grown and shrunk over the years. The most I had was in 2000 when I had 42 snakes with a number of different species. Thatís also when I was breeding my boas. In late 2001 life took a hard turn and I had to start significantly downsizing, simply didnít have the income to afford proper care for the number of snakes that I had. I dropped down to less than 10, the ones that were truly like my kids....I just couldnít part with them. The keepers included the oldest ones I have now, plus my original male redtail that passed away last year at age 26 and my female cornsnake that passed last month at age 16.

    No matter what other species I added, my two boas were my first loves and they were always destined to live their lives with me. That said, there are a few I sold that I wish I had kept. Iíve always regretted parting with my Cuban boas (Morticia & Gomez) and my jungle x coastal carpet cross (Byron). Even now I keep an eye out for Cuban boas...and Iím always drooling over the different carpets.

    I would have named her blue berry... Such an amazing looking animal. To only dream.... for now.

    Re: The prettiest snake I have.

    Soooo beautiful!!! My 14 year old (herp loving child) really wanted one of these for her FFA curio cabinet vivarium project. The enclosure would have worked for the snake, but I talked her out of it because (a) they are pricey and (b) my research showed that they are not very docile. My daughter was already upset that her rescued BP has turned out to be very bitey and not friendly. I pointed her towards a chameleon, who has turned out to be a very friendly little guy and a better choice. But she still very much wants one of these beautiful snakes one day.
    Our familiy: Noodle the albino ratsnake; Spot the Banana BP, Lucy the massive pinstripe BP, Harold the panther chameleon, Poppy the hedgehog, Bob and Ross the beta fish, Maya the dog, Max and Momo the cats, Tauntaun the Light Brahma Chicken (lives at the high school barn), two teenagers, and a very nice partner, all well-loved and cared for.

    WHAT a beauty! I'm in love! I immediately had to show your pics and video to my family, and they were also floored.
