Can we start a desert boas section?

Like a Rosy and Gound Boas section? Or is there one and I'm just stupid? It's hard to find a good forum dedicated to these types of snakes which have fairly different needs than other boas. It would be nice to have a separate section for them. Thanks!

Back when this site first started, I too asked for such a forum, but there's not a lot of demand.

If there is a large enough of a demand for the section, IT can be aded although I doubt there is ..

If you want to see this forum open up .. speak ure mind .. lets see how many ppl want it and w can judge from there wether it is worth or not oppening a forum just for these specific boas...

Rosies and sandboas are a different classification, hence they share different latin names. Sandboas are Erycine, Rosies are Lichanura...

The whole group are called Erycines Linds, including the Calabria, and the rubber boas. The genus for sandies is Eyrx not Erycine.

:confused:

Really? I was under a different impression. I didn't think that all the desert boas were grouped together, and that only the sand boa were erycines, and rosies were a whole different class.........
