    Oscar and Opal

    My baby hog island boas have had 3 consecutive meals in them so I figured I'd get some pics and do and actual introduction. I purchased them from Grady Calhoun and he was an awesome guy to deal with. From what I understand he isn't on MM and doesn't have a website, strictly word of mouth thru FB. So check him out if you get a chance.

    And now for the boas. The first two pictures are Opal the female. She's been nothing but a sweetheart since I've had her. Very inquisitive and gentle mannered. Then there's Oscar. He's the second two pictures. He's funny to me because he's so tiny but has a huge attitude! He's very "cage aggressive" and will hiss louder than an adult snake to let you know that but once you get him out he's completely fine. I actually used his cage aggression to my advantage. The breeder said he's only eaten live since he's been born and will refuse f/t. Well while feeding one day he opened his mouth wide and hissed his tail off so I seized the moment. I put the f/t prey in his mouth while he was yelling at me and he had no choice but to eat it once he got a good taste of it and hasn't refused a meal since.

    Anyway here they are. Sorry for the bad lighting but the only good room I have for taking good lighting pictures is in the actual snake room and since they're still in quarantine I didn't want to take them in there.

    Looking good. Happy they ate happily, or maybe unhappily at first , for you. You should be golden now.

    Keep us posted on their progression.

    Nice pair!
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    1.2 Coastal Carpet Pythons
    Mack The Knife, 2013
    Lizzy, 2010
    Etta, 2013
    1.1 Jungle Carpet Pythons
    Esmarelda , 2014
    Sundance, 2012
    2.0 Common BI Boas, Punch, 2005; Butch, age?
    0.1 Normal Ball Python, Elvira, 2001
    0.1 Olive (Aussie) Python, Olivia, 2017

    Please excuse the spelling in my posts. Auto-Correct is my worst enema.
