    I have 5 boas that need good homes, a female Suriname RTB, male and female Hogg island boas,female peruvian RTB and a male columbian RTB. They are up for grabs- you pay the price of shipping and thats it. If anyone is interested send me a PM and Ill give you pics of the one youre interested in. The reason I need to find new homes for them is because Im moving in 2 weeks and cant bring them with me.

    Hello,

    Make sure you try to screen the potential new owners Sav. As shady as this practice is, some people will take them off your hands so they can turn around and sell them for a profit. While they do this, don't expect them all to be living in the ideal habitat. It is purely for funding and nothing more. There are stories about this all over the net. (Thats why you should always avoid those users that post things like "I will take all of your reptiles and give them a good home....".) Do you really think those people have the ability to adequately house 15 incoming reptiles that we don't even know they can care for properly? I highly doubt that. lol

    It looks almost certain that I will be able to take all of Savs snakes. I also promissed her that when she gets back on her feet that i will gladly return them, Hopefully a win/win situation for all. Plus I'm close enough to pick them up from her so she need not worry about the dreaded "shipping stress"

    thats a shame that you have to get rid of them but at least you know they'll be going to a great home. good luck and hopefully later on you can enjoy them again. :)
