I went to pick up a boa a few years back. I was told she was proven, having had 20 something viable babies. I probed 'her' to make sure, and guess what? yup, it was clearly male. The seller continued to insist on it being female. He's very pretty, soI bought it anyways. a year later, he became a dad, making him a proven male, and the seller a proven IDIOTIC LIAR!

Sorry about the last bit, he still comes on here now and then

Drives me crazy, you will find alot of people will use the biggest probe in their set aswell. It's a female i've probed it, yeah everything is a female when you probe it with a baseball bat...

Sometimes you luck out thou and benefit from their mistakes when you buy a boy and get a sexy lady. I'm still pinching myself from the mojo i lucked out on last year.

I'm not angry at her, more annoyed with myself ha!

i would be bloody angry as she is clearly a blatant liar and cheat..

Hmm I suppose she shouldn't have sold them as females! But trusting people you don't know is a chance you have to take when buying snakes I suppose, definitely buying from breeders next time!

I'd be fuming! Esp if you had bought them for breeding. And like you said females are more expensive if it was me I'd be asking for some money back! But that's just me lol

I've emailed her asking if she'd basically take him back and give me some back, but heard nothing, doubt I will hear tbh! I'm just glad they were normals, and I didn't pay for a 'female' morph, as I would have been duped out of a lot more lol!

the worst part of it is there ignoring your emails now, I suppose they could of been unexperianced when it comes to probing snakes and made an error of judgement, but it sounds like they said it was female to bump up the price and now they don't wanna know, what arseholes.
