    Thanks for the replies y'all! I'm quite smitten with her and excited to spend the next 20-30 years watching her development.

    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.
    Yeah according to Bob the mother at 7yrs old isn't too big, he raised that litter very slow as he was raising 39 of them at once and not pushing them to become 45 pounders right away. In his own words though, the grandmother to my girl is, "a monster, if you're looking for size characteristics." Probably close to 20yrs old and in the 40-50lb range.

    Based on how you compared their temp preferences to that of Diamond Pythons, I'm guessing you've listened to his interview on Corallus Radio about Argentine Boas? If not then here is the link. VERY in depth and informative. Though he did go on to tell me that he doesn't let the juveniles get quite as cool as his adults.

    So stoked to have this critter. Literally took my breath away when I opened her bag.

    She seems to be making a petition for that moniker lol. Sheís not even been here 36hrs so sheís understandably freaked out Iím sure.
    Still torn between Susan and Mirabelle or possibly Gertrude. Mirabelle means ďof wonderous beautyĒ and sheís gorgeous so I kind of want to go with that name, but sassy Susan has a nice ring too... not a big rush though. Iíve had critters go a few weeks before I settled on names before

    Thanks buddy! Was to be expected, given the species and their reputation as juveniles. Sheíll grow out of it and to be honest, itís kind of cute to see such a small critter act like such a badass. Iím still in awe every time I peek in the enclosure. Sheís so freakin pink itís unbelievable
