Scarlett, the Pet of the Day
Name: Scarlett
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Brazilian Rainbow Boa
Home: Louisville, Kentucky, USA
   I got Scarlett as a birthday present from my boyfriend about a year ago. I had just gotten into snakes and when I saw the gorgeous colors on these Boas, I knew had to get one. Brazilian Rainbow Boas (Epicrates Cenchria Cenchria) are known to be nippy and have a bit of an attitude when they are young, but she was the sweetest snake ever from the moment we met. She acted like she was more of a ball python in terms of temperament.

    She's very curious and sweet and doesn't mind me holding her for long periods of time. They are called Rainbow Boas because as you can see in some of the pictures, when the light hits them a certain way, their scales give off a rainbow sheen which makes her even more beautiful, although I love her so much she is beautiful to me no matter what.
