    Genesis (2018 Hypo Blood) debut and progression thread!

    After a few weeks of settling in and getting to know each other, I finally brought Genesis out for some photos! Forgive the blue bedspread, it started out as a regular handling session, haha.

    He tends to look more burgundy or dark mahogany under the (rather subpar) fluorescent lighting of the room his tub is in, but in natural lighting, his reds really pop.









    I also brought out one of his decorations to see if I could get some pictures of him climbing along its branches - but instead he just slithered inside it, then proceeded to play peek-a-boo with me for the next 5 minutes.



    Pop! Goes the weasel! Or er, the boa.



    I'm really enjoying this little fellow. Definitely a very distinct personality from my ball python duo. I also appreciate that I don't have to pick a god and pray every time feeding day rolls around, ha!

    Genesis poking his head out of the decoration is so precious, that's gotta be one of my favourite boa photos of all time. He's such a cutie, looks very active and curious and that fiery colouring is a real head-turner. It's also nice to have a boa around when you keep BPs since they can snap up any refusals once they're grown up. What are the biggest differences you've noticed between him and your BPs so far?

    Thanks so much, Richard! He's in blue now, so I'm eager to see how he looks after he's shed and fed again.

    Haha, my heart fluttered when his little head poked up from the tree hollow, it was such a cute moment! (I may have made some very silly noises of adoration from behind my phone camera. Luckily there were no witnesses.)

    I uh, also had an unforeseen moment of weakness at the reptile show I went to last weekend, so I now have two little boas. More on that once I have some photos for a proper post about the new kid. But so far, compared to Iggy and Rae, both boas are much more active explorers, faster-moving, eager eaters (of course), and seem to have no qualms with sleeping in an open corner ... or wedged along the top of the tub lid ... or on top of their decor ... or wherever. In terms of personality, the boas seem to have an overall more sharply "focused" demeanor. While the BPs are often content to just sit on my lap or in my hands in a cuddly little heap, the boas seem to be frequently locking onto an objective, even when they're just sitting still. Not as speedy or slippery as colubrids I've handled in the past, but they definitely sometimes act like they have places to go and people (or rodents?) to see.

    I may have botched the order in which I purchased my snakes though, haha. Since boas grow much more slowly, it'll be quite a few more years before they can start assisting with the inevitable BP leftovers!

    I totally would have done the same if I'd seen him do that, he's so adorable!

    Oh my goodness, two boas?! That's awesome, congratulations on the new pick up! I can't wait to see the new baby.

    It's very cool that your boa is more active and okay with sleeping out of his hide. I do wish Noodle would come out of his hide more often, but alas, he loves staying in his caves. Even when he's exploring outside of his enclosure the main thing he's focusing on his finding a new place to hide

    Hearing about your boa me all the more tempted to get one eventually, haha. Looking forward to following your adventures with your new snake!

    That is just so cute, what a stunning snake, I love the reds. The peekaboo pictures are so adorable.

    Haha, I feel you! Unless it's feeding day or if I'm actively bringing him out for photos, then I never see Iggy beyond, at most, his face poking out of his rock cave entrance, lol. Ravus is slightly more frequently visible, but mostly only because he comes out to pee and make a mess more often.

    Thanks so much, Valyndris! Red is my favorite color, so this little guy hit me right in my weakness even before he tried his little peekaboo trick, haha!
