picking up a new boa tomorrow from leaping lizards in york, this time its a guyana redtail (b.c.c.) im travelling about 200 miles in total but it will be worth it,
its a 6ft male to pair up with my big female and i have looked all year for an appropriate adult so to finally find one is so great, i feel like a kid at christmas im so excited :D
i'll post some pics up as soon as i get back home

oh and thank you to andyj5447 for letting me know they had it in :wink:

hopefully not, he'll be in a hessian sack and placed inside a plastic carry box so that should help him feel secure,
the return journey should take about 1 hour 40 mins according to the AA route planner so thats not too bad, i just hope he doesnt bite me when i take him out of the bag, although i suppose it would make the pics more interesting :lol:

ive only ever been bitten off one of my boas once (i have 4) and that was only because i had handled mice and not washed my hands, she was about 3ft at the time and it didnt really hurt that much tbh, but its still not much fun lol
i'd hate it to happen now though as she is 9.5ft and as thick as my thigh :shock:

:wink: ah now thats a secret i cant divulge just yet, need to do some more research :D

and tbh i think thats why i like boas the most, have really good characters, tempted by pythons but our lass wont let me get one due to she nearly got eaten by one in kenya...some people are just selfish :lol:
