    Here is our new male Brazilian Rainbow Boa. He's 5 years old: quite long (I'll have to wait till he sheds to say how long: my guess is about 160cm and he weighs 1.84kg.)
    I think he's a beauty: EXTREMELY dark. (Sorry only two pics, but I didn't want to stress him too much on his first night here.) I have him in quarantine to check for mites -- I didn't see any on him but I rubbed him down with some Reptile Relief just in case -- thus the ugly rubber gloves on the first pic.

    What do you think? :D

    Closer up:

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks everybody! :D :D
    He is a beauty and seems really much more iridescent than Talyn... even in low lighting! He's got really good weight on him and seems very healthy. I'll be sending a stool sample in to check, though.

    Aiden: I was expecting to get bit last night; but so far so good. He's not really used to handling. So I'm sure to get tagged before too long.

    I got him from a colleague who breeds Peruvian, Argentinian and Brazilian Rainbow Boas as well as BCC, Ratsnakes, Cornsnakes, Kingsnakes and some others that I couldn't identify.

    He's a proven breeder... so if Talyn isn't gravid this time around, there's still hope down the road! (I think they'll make a pretty pair)

    More pics

    Here are a few more taken today. He's kind of shy: mostly staying coiled up in a ball and not moving... but at least he hasn't tried to bite me yet! :D


    Not a really great pic of Crais, but it gives an idea of his size AND it's an OK shot of me.:rolleyes:


    Look at the beautiful color transition from his head to his neck.


    Thanks for all the nice comments!
