    I never find him on the ground anymore lol. The tree stump is at the highest point in the cage, but yeah, he might not be exactly arboreal. And Thank you.

    Nice! I'm really glad he is breeding them still, too. I really wanted a boa but I can't do the larger sized ones. The dwarf species really are just perfect. Their care is so easy and their personalities are fun. I couldn't get another snake until I moved, and the week I moved in I called Stephen to inquire, and his litter had been born the night before. It lined up so perfectly. There aren't a lot of specifics on care guides for Tarahumara but I didn't feel like I needed one since Stephen was able to answer all my questions.

    I can't take mine outside but I recently got a blanket ladder. I'm going to turn it into a climbing space for my ball python and boa.

    By the way, one reason snakes of all kinds like to get a little higher vantage point is to easily pounce on clueless prey running right underneath them. It's a pretty effective tactic. In the case of desert rosy boas, it also helps them get off the hot burning sand, but mostly they're crepuscular anyway. (< my $10 word for the day)
