    Question Help Me Decide Which Boa to Get?

    So I’m going to NARBC in Tinley and I’ve been talking to two breeders and I can’t decide which boa I should get. I would love to get both but I don’t have the enclosures for two. Help me please!

    What are the genetics of each and the sex of each?

    The looks will change with age depending on genetics.

    What size tank have you set up for the little one and what do you plan on for when he/she grows up?

    Theyre both almost a year old and male. I have a 4ft long enclosure as a temporary set up and Iím planning on getting a bigger enclosure for later down the road. I know one is albino and the other id have to look at the website again.

    Albino, but what strain? Kahl or Sharp? Straight albino or is there anything else in there?

    What do the parents look like?

    Without other Genes, albinos tend to fade with age. Kahl more so. You lose a lot of the contrast they have when younger.

    Still beautiful.

    The other may hold color and contrast better, depending on genetics.

    Temperament? Any difference or both chill and good eaters?

    Also, depending on depth, a 4ft tank can be a life tank for a male BCI if not overfed.

    Personally I prefer the look of the second, darker one, but that's just me...what do YOU like? I've had many snakes of all colors.

    Both stunning snakes - itís down to your personal taste , I guess .

    Both would look great on dark coloured substrate like orchid bark or Reptibark ...imho

    I would go with the darker one as the red eyes of albinos bother me. Although, you should get whichever one YOU want
