    Looks like you picked another winner! Incidentally, of the 3 you were trying to decide between before, I preferred the male sunglow, but I was determined
    not to say anything that would influence your choice.

    Thanks Bogertophis.

    For the record, I shared some pics of some of Jeff Ronne's animals with Bogertophis asking for an opinion. She refused!!!!!! The nerve . Wanted me to make the decision myself. LOL.

    One was a snow paradox, one was a sharp (albino) key west, and one was the Sunglow Motley Jungle I posted earlier in the month on the forum.

    After looking around the show today, I was so incredibly drawn to the sunglows. The first Boa I ever held was one of BoaKings sunglow males. I called him the next day and that male had sold and I ended up with Behira. Again, no regrets, I adore her, but now I can have my Ghost and Sunglow too (oh and BCC - Feliz - ).

    I love contrast, but love the creamy yellow of the sunglows. With Jeff's eyes, black spots, etc. and the wonderful yellow and orange/red, plus his motley pattern and the intensity of the jungle and the T+ albino, wow! He's all that and a bag of frozen rodents!

    Anyway, it's fitting I got another animal from Gil and Boakings since he introduced to me Boas and that my last reptile be a sunglow boa.

    On some level I regret not getting something from Jeff, but he's really happy with my choice and that I am happy. He's also flattered I named Jeff, in part, after him. He deserves it. What a mensch (great guy).

    Can't wait to watch his progression and see his colours come in.

    Thanks EL-Ziggy. The boas have a special place in my heart, and he is so incredibly chill, and so stunning. Yes, I love the tail stripe and what looks like a dog bone in his pattern towards the tail. The arrow on his head is cool too! I can't wait to watch him intensify with age. He already glows.

    I've regretted finding Boas so late in my (reptile) life, so it's only fitting they be the dominant snake in my collection. Now I'll have BIG Behira, Medium Jeff, and Small (relative) Feliz. I've got sizes, colors, patterns, etc. all covered. They are also all wonderful animals from a personality wise, but seemingly, all different.

    Thank you Rich. I am so glad I got a sunglow. I held a Sharp Sunglow at the show and liked a Sunglow Motleybesque, but the latter was with a breeder who didn't offer to have me hold him. Something about Jeff spoke to me and I can't argue with the color, pattern, or genetics.

    It means something to me that I finished where I started. Both with the same breeder, and with a sunglow. I feel like I've closed the loop now. I couldn't be happier with the final addition. Let's just hope Jeff isn't into striking acrylic doors . What are the odds? Katie, how fresh are your drape making skills?

    Thank you Team Slytherin.

    I know. How cool is he going to be with a black mustache and a striking yellow and red body. Oh, and those eyes!

    Thank you Craig. I appreciate the comment. As stated above, it was almost destiny to close the collection down with him. It's funny. I wasn't going to go to the show, but asked Meghan if she wanted to, on a whim. Fortuitous? She was waiting at the door when I get there yesterday morning. Jacket, bag, etc. ready to go. Glad I went.
