    2018 0.1 Boa Constrictor Occidentalis, Argentine Boa, Progression

    Bred at Ancient Reproductions by Bob Guerriere. Born on 8/17/2018 from 2011 parents who are pictured below. Mom (first pic) was right about 15lbs at breeding. Not sure on dadís stats size wise, it was one of two males with very similar coloration and they were litter mates.

    probable dad 1
    probable dad 2
    direct sun on dad 2

    Baby girl just now weighed in at 133grams, between 18-24Ē. Very calmly crawled onto my hand right out of the bag. As soon as I put her in the enclosure she squared up on me and started wagging her tail all over. Absolutely adorable. The photos below donít do her any justice. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor after opening her bag. Even Bob said he was taken back when he packed her up last night. Sheís not from his Maxx Pink breeding lines but is incredibly colorful nonetheless and should develop into a stunning critter over the years.

    Gonna wait a bit before settling on a name, but currently thinking about Mirabelle if she acts real sweet or Susan if she has some sass

    wow! now that is one cool Boa! i love those red saddles and the darkness. i was wondering from your tattoo what might have that snout and pattern (Anaconda Heterodon morph) or colors (P. porphyriacus). anyways she looks absolutely rock n'roll and i hope she has sass.



    congratulations!

    Mouth just dropped!

    Well done sir!

    An often forgotten and underrated member of the boa constrictor family.

    Argies can get pretty big, they are in the top 3 of the largest boas for sure.

    I'm presume you are well aware these boas prefer lower temps, kind like the diamond python of the boa world.

    I'm very excited for you.
