    I want one!

    are they expensive to buy and keep?


    *EDIT*
    after doing a quick google on keeping boas, ive changed my mind... they can live for 30 years!! ,that would make me nearly 60 when it snuffed it!!

    Photos NOT OK to edit
    It's the same SN, but I haven't posted anything in a while, btw I have an 8 year old BP and a 2 year old Hog Island boa and 8 tarantulas, and thinking about getting a Rooatan Island "Firebelly" boa.

    Yes, they are a big commitment :) Much longer than a cat or dog. They're great as pets, in my opinion, if you can provide the right envirnments for them to grow in. Females (like Kenzy here) grow up to 6ft in the first three years, and are full grown by 8-10ft at adult hood a few years later. Males are smaller, and slower to grow, usually. Normal colombian red tails are about $100-150 and you can expect they enclosures at adulthood (5-6ft long cage for a female, 4-5ft long for males) to cost between $300-400 with heating.

    Wooo, in any case, thanks again to everyone for the comments, critiques, and compliments. You'll see all of them, I'm sure, as they grow :)

    You already know what I think of those shots. The boa keeper population here is growing!
