Re: When Hog Islands ruled...

Thank you all for the nice comments. When I got back into boas last year (I had a Peruvian Pucallpa BCC many years ago), I really wanted a slightly smaller snake, with beautiful coloration and a sweet disposition. Well, I couldn't have made a better choice than a Hog Island.

Pebbles is beautiful... Is she as sweet as she looks?
Yes, Alessia, she's a real sweetheart. Although she has an amazing feeding response, she's never hissed, struck, or otherwise taken a truly defensive posture toward me or anyone else, for that matter. I also love the fact that she's very curious, but still slow and deliberate like boas tend to be (except when striking/coiling to feed! ). Anyway, yes, she rocks! And yes, you NEED one!!!!

Thanks again for all the kind words.
