Ok so since I am not getting the CL boa Merv, I guess I need to decide what kind of Boa I might want to get in the future. I REALLY like both Colombians and Dumerils. I like that Colombians get BIG (and fast - I am not very patient lol) - I like big snakes (any bigger than a boa though is too big for me lol). I think Colombians are gorgeous snakes, but Dumerils' patterns are quite stunning. I like that Dumerils are ambush hunters too. I know that they are both docile (is one more so than the other) and easy keepers. But I want to get together a longer, more thorough list of pros and cons and characteristics of the two. So, anyone who owns or has owned either of these Boas, please chime in!
