As far as boas go they do end up on the bigger side and don't have "color" which is what many are after (which is why we have so many morphs like the albino ones), but personally I prefer them in the more natural/dark/black and white colors and find their size rather impressive. These and Argentines are on my want list for sure.

Will be looking forward to updates :)

Re: longicauda boas
Thanks snoopysnake. I really like the Argentine too, Iíve got morphs as well but find something really nice about that shiny jet black against the silver and gold on them, guess thatís why Iíve for an img aswell.

my two bcl are two on the 12 april and i took a couple of pics this week as they was looking good
'Mama Quilla' is now 4.5ft long and 1100G her silver looks so good against her black and gold saddles, She is on small rats once a fortnight and is going to every this weeks next feed, she is not over keen on the slippery table and tries to flatten herself out to get extra grip

little 'Etso'is much darker than her and is only 3 ft and half the weight of his wife to be
