    She's pretty.

    Do snakes like that not ever bite much? I'd be afraid to hold one for long--too afraid it might swing around and bite me!!

    The only time I've ever held a snake was when I was 10 years old and they had this lady bring out tons of kinds of snake telling about them and the last snake was a boa and she let a kid from each class come down and hold part of it up.
    The other time was when I was about 18 I guess and there was a 5 ft. long rat snake in my duck's nest trying to get her eggs and I was afraid it might bite my duck so I grabbed it and threw it out.
    That's all the snake I've ever touched!!

    lol... I grew up with two older brothers so we've always had snakes. i remember we used to go out and catch them all the time and bring them home to my mom. She had no choice but to get used to them, lol. Boas are very calm, easy going snakes. They are not very likely to bite, but like all animals there is that chance. They are always fun to have around and are great pets.

    I'm not a snake lover, but I have to admit that she really has beautiful markings. How big will she get? - and how big is Sam? They don't bite? - but they squeeze, don't they?

    Thanks, Barry

    She is beautiful! So her tail will always be red like that? That's interesting.
    I'd also like to see some pix of Sam.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    she is only around a foot long right now but since she is a female she will grow to be 12 to 13 feet long within three years. Sam is 1 year old and he is about 4 feet long right now. He will probably olny grow to be between 8 and 10 feet long. Most likely 8. They are constrictors which means that after they have bitten their pray they coil around it and sqeeze it untill it can no longer breath before they swallow it.

    When I was a kid for show and tell one parent brought a HUGE snake. He let it on the floor at the end and said kids could touch it, probably would be issues with that now. I touched it first and only one other kid did after.

    It was calm but was black or almost black green, was so long ago.

    Very nice markings.
