    This is Rose. She is a 2 year old Nicaraguan Boa. We got her specifically because she was tiny and we want to breed her dwarf genes into our boa line to make smaller boas. :)

    Thank you thank you! I love her color as well! I wish the camera could capture her color better. Her whole tummy and up her sides is rose pink. :)

    I don't think she will ever get any bigger than 4-5 feet, and I think even that might be considered big for these guys. At 2 years old, she is the same size as a 6 month old columbian red tail.

    She looks a lot like my Vladimir - He is two years old (this picture is recent). about 35 inches. I think he'll be a midget too.

    He's pretty cute. :) Is he a cross?

    Rose is about 28 inches at a little over 2 years old.
    Here is my husband holding her.

    Vladimir is about 2 years old, and was sold to me as a "Central American boa".

    It should also be noted, he was a horrible eater his first year and a half. I was lucky if I could get a meal in him every second month. It didn't matter what I offered, live, dead, pre-killed, frozen/thawed, fresh, old, mouse, rat pinky, hamster, gerbil. He would have none of it. I tweaked temps, humidity, EVERYTHING.

    He only recently started eating good for me.
