    Re: 2018 0.1 Boa Constrictor Occidentalis, Argentine Boa, Progression

    Seriously, I have snake envy over this girl more than most snakes I see. She's just awesome.

    Between her and a few of RichardHind1972's Boas, along with a few others on this site, it's hard not to want another one.

    Of course, I am super happy with Behira, Feliz, and Jeff, and have no plans to add now, but looking never hurt anyone.

    Your girl is going to look ridiculously awesome at size! I cannot wait to see her full grown (as I am sure you cannot either).

    Thanks brother! Shes definitely a favorite here.

    Im always envious of Richards boa posts too. Especially his IMG girl Medusa.

    Youve got a great gang of boas too man! I havent really been a morph person with my personal collection in a while but Jeff is grabbing my attention more and more every time I see him. Hes going to look awesome at 5-6.

    Cant wait to see this girl with some serious size. Curious if shell ever darken up or stay really light in the background like she is now.

    Thanks mate,
    That bco is just so cool, love how pink she is already, I follow someone on Instagram with some amazing max pink
    I love to see them when they in hunt mode up high, I've noticed my locality boas do this more than my morphs, especially my Guyana and corn islands

    Yep! Bob/Ancient Reproductions is the breeder who I got Mirabelle from. Hes who started the Maxx Pink line of BCO and had been working on that project for ~26yrs. Stunning animals to say the least

    Just some interesting observations I thought Id share.

    Death from above...
    This is great boa. Absolute bulldozer's.
    I have never seen a boa with as much confidence as BCO. If you opened the door of the enclosure opposite of where my big girl was she would put her boots on and come straight over to see what was going on. If I was spot cleaning she would put that massive head about two inches away and supervise all movements. I knew because of they way she was that there wasn't any risk but that didn't stop me from having misgivings about an 8 foot + boa with zero give-a-damns about me injecting herself in my space. -It didn't help knowing what she was capable of either...When tossing a 4 pound FT rabbit in there she would hit and wrap so hard that the wife has asked what happened in there from the other room?

    The male is the same. Completely confident, comes straight to the door when you open it and both are perfectly calm as long as you let them check things out before touching them. I don't own a hook but neither of these two would respond to hook training. If you touched before they checked things out you were in for a wide open mouth and hiss that would send shivers. -There is no question in my mind that they would back it up but I always meet them on there terms and neither ever bit me as adults.

    One cool sunny day I put my big girl in the back yard. The conditions were perfect for her to bask and she crawled out of some tree shade into the sun and stayed there for about 45 minutes. (She travels in a straight line -inch worm style) After she was warmed up and started heading off I went to go get her. She stopped forward motion and started twitching her tail. I decided I would touch the tail and see what happened. I bent over towards her tail and she didn't move except for the tail twitch until I touched her tail then she spun around with her mouth open like a shot! Had she really wanted a piece of me...she'd could have. After I stood up she followed me with her head but soon lost interest and I picked her up without incident.

    There is a picture of the male in my gallery...my female was 'average' looking the male is gorgeous. I say 'was' because the female had a complication while gravid with her first litter. I waited 13 years to pair them and was more excited for that litter than the first Suriname litter.

    Really cool snakes and yours is beautiful.

    Re: 2018 0.1 Boa Constrictor Occidentalis, Argentine Boa, Progression

    Thanks for sharing bns! Ive noticed a lot of the same things with my bco girl. Very boldly confident but mostly at night when in stalking mode. During the day shes a tad shy.
    Ive been hook training her from day one with good success. When shes feeling pissy shes certainly not shy about making it known. Sounds like a tractor tire stuck with a nail and can hear her from outside my snake room.
    Once shes been tapped with a hook and given a second to acknowledge whats going on shes calm as can be. Will go from mouth open loudly hissing to dead silence in two seconds once shes in my hands.
    Cant wait to see her with the physique and mass of a boat anchor. If her grandmother is any indication of size potential then she could become an absolute tank of an animal. Ill get some new pics of her up soon.
