I already have 2 common boa's and she look's nothin like them which made me wonder, she does have lovely circle's on her back and is grey/salmon in colour. How would i go about doing a scale count??

hard when theyre young mate.. as they get bigger its easier, when they shed you count the scales almost like a arrow shape across its back.. there is a book that explains it in detail and has all the common boas etc etc in it.. worth getting.. i swear by it now, its called : The Complete Boa Constrictor. worth the 30 odd quid on amazon. :2thumb:

Cheer's for that snake, i have a book called Designer Morph's by John Berry (signed) but i don't think there's anything in that about scale count's, think i may need to invest in another book! :lol2:

Is that scale count anywhere on their back or a certain place?

its across the back.. go for the middle of the snake think it says.. and it goes from one side up to like a point in middle and back to the other side, explains it all in that book.. and has in each locality and breed of boa their details and the amount in scale counts so you can identify yours exactly.. i would reccomend it to anyone thats into boas.. its 30 somethin quid on amazon.co.uk
:welcome:

from the pics i can see there is nothing that points me in way of bcc. not widdow peak saddles or red tail.

i'd say its a common bci. tbh if its a cross you will never find out and without sounding harsh ist hardly summat tos hout about: victory:
