100% pure locality wild caught boa

I was trawling through my old pics and came across this, she's an Ecuadorian boa. She was caught two days previous to this and released the next day

I have just uploaded these images:

I totally agree with you Ziggy she's an absolute beautiful snake, and considering we just picked her up out of the jungle she was quite calm but a bit flighty

Awesome looking boa, if I ever get another boa it will be a natural "morph" for sure. Something about them just looks awesome.

Very beautiful girl. It's so nice to see them in their own domain.

Yip beautiful indeed . The only reason this girl was caught in the first place though, is that the guy beside me in the pic is a bush pilot and he almost ran over her landing at a small village in the middle of the jungle. So he bagged her and brought her back to the station on his way back. As I said a couple of days later she was bagged put on a plane, and released. There were three flights to the same village that day she was on the first, and I was on the second. They took me to the spot where they let her go but it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, but you could only see about 6ft in front off the trail into the rainforest
