Prism, the Pet of the Day
Name: Prism
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Brazilian Rainbow Boa Constrictor
Home: Cromwell, Connecticut, USA
 
   Prism is a Brazilian Rainbow Boa Constrictor. He's a beautiful and happy boy. I purchased him in April of 2003, and he's just a sweetheart. He can be a bit nippy, but that's to be expected, the young ones are usually a lot more snappy than he is, so he's starting off relatively calm.

    What makes him even more special is that his scales have the ability to refract full spectrum light into its color components. If you look closely, you can see the "rainbow shine" on his scales, that's how his species gets their name. Prism is an absolutely stunning boy, and the newest addition to my reptile family.
