    Okay - in the late few weeks I have seen 1 Tamaulipas Boa & at least 5 Tarahumara Boas (1 adult proven pair & a trio of Juveniles sold together) on MorphMarket. The Tamaulipas & juvenile Tarahumaras sold very quickly (they were on already hold when I spotted them). The proven pair(7 yrs. old) of Tarahumara boas is currently on MorphMarket for about $2,500. While that is likely a very good deal - it is also a lot more than I am willing to spend on a pair.

    However last Friday afternoon - I found out that TC Reptile(Tommy Carpenter) just had a new, yet unexpected litter of Tamaulipas Cloud Forest Boas born. So I was able to put a deposit on a pair of those. Hopeful I should be getting them in early - mid Sept.

    Woo, congrats! Glad you were able to snag a pair and join us here in the Mexican Boa Club.

    I am definitely looking forward to getting the pair of Tamaulipas Cloud Forest Boas. They are very beautiful, yet come from a fairly rare(because they are so new) Mexican locality. They stay small in size, yet they are pure Imperator.

    I would also love to eventually get a pair of Tarahumaras as well. But I am also very willing to wait for next year if needed.

    New Update - I picked up a 2020 female Tarahumara Boa this week. She arrived Today. She is about 16" long and totally stunning.

    Sorry for the late update - But I got my pair of Tamaulipas Cloud Forest about 2 months ago, about 2 weeks after I got my female Tarahumara Mt. Boa. All three are both doing well. Right now all three are presently between 17-20" in length.
