    Jeff Shemesh - VPI T+ Sunglow Motley Jungle het Anery

    I've been going back and forth with Jeff Ronne about getting one if his amazing animals. I couldn't decide what to get.

    A) Last reptile for the foreseeable future. Not enough time, energy, or room, for more.

    B) Want something special for my last and also for my 40th BDAY present. Not until March, but I got something early .

    I went to the NY Reptile EXPO today and met up with my buddy Gil, from Boakings, a small breeder from NY who specializes in Boas, mostly BI. I bought Behira from him and he spends a lot of time with his animals to keep them chill and because he doesn't have a ton.

    I fell in love. I'd seen a bunch of sunglows there, but didn't trust the breeders. Also, not "special" enough. A few were willing to mark the price down immediately, but not let me hold the animal, and others didn't know temperament, bday, or what they were eating.

    I went with my niece, Meghan, and she fell in love too. We were both like, "WHAT! Sunglow, chill as can be, with a black stash, and black spots, and grayish blue eyes!" SOLD! Katie loves that he's a he too. Smaller (likely) than a female BI.

    Meet Jeff Shemesh. Jeff for my best friend Jeff, who is blonde and blue eyed, and also after Jeff Ronne, who built all my tanks, and has been a true friend and encouraged me to get Jeff, even though it was from another breeder. I've learned so much about Boas from Jeff Ronne.

    And, no, pictures do not do him justice. He will get richer coloring as he ages. He's about 10 months now. Born 1-26-19.

    He is in quarantine in my office for at least the next two months, in a 24X10X12 enclosure.

    Congrats, Dave! Glad you finally found that special sunglow -- I love that crazy head stamp he has. Here's to a few good decades and Jeff Shemesh growing into a handsome boa!

    I was on a mission at the expo with some friends today, so we must have passed each other without knowing it! I saw a lot of the other sunglows you were talking about -- my first thoughts were "huh, a buddy is looking for a snake like this, I wish he was here." Glad to see that you were.

    Thank you all! I am so excited. When I have my cell on me, I'll post a picture from the show with Meghan holding him.

    WrongPython - Sorry we missed each other, but thank you for the kind words. He really does seem "special" and that's what I was looking for.

    I forgot to mention.

    His middle name, Shemesh, is Hebrew for "sun."

    This is what happens when I let him go to a reptile show on his own.
