is Takara (tah-kah-rah) which is a Japanese word for our precious
treasure, we call him "Kah."
This little guy brings so much joy to my day. I got him when he was only
about two weeks old. My boyfriend surprised me with him one Saturday. I
have wanted a boa for a long time and he makes a perfect addition to our
family. He is the least demanding pet I have ever owned. He loves to be
out of his tank exploring things, he's very curious about everything!
He hates our dog, I just pray the day never comes that he has the dog
for dinner - just kidding. We always keep a close eye on him when he's
out and about, for his own safety, so there's no danger of that ever
happening. He is only two feet long right now but I look forward to
watching him grow and having him around for many years to come :-) This
picture was taken just after he had shed, so you can see his marking are
very clean and the red very bright. Isn't he handsome?
