    At one point I spoke about my beautiful Viper Boa Athena, This beautiful animal demand respect by anyone who simply looked at her... unfortunately Athena passed away earlier this year, due to a nasty situation that was never disclosed to me by the original owner... (Apparently she was wild caught, I was told she was captive bred)...
    Anyways I decided to share a couple of pictures of her so that everyone could see, that you can’t judge a book by its cover..

    so sorry for your loss, I absolutely adore Viper boas! My male passed away this winter as well:(
    most viper boas in the pet trade are wild caught.

    very beautiful and regal. I am sorry she passed away. It is heart breaking to hear about animals suffering in the pet trade due to false information, but I have no doubt that you treated her like royalty.

    Thank you all for the kind words, She truly was a diamond in the rough.

    The only reason I found out she was wild caught was because the store owner let it slip about a month after she passed... As you can imagine I was furious....However, I plan to get another one as soon as possible.

    Tell me about it =/. but, it was a lesson well learned, royalty?!?!?! she was my little princess, nobody in my circle of household could go near her without her hissing, and when something like that hisses at you it can be frightening, however if I went up to her she would stick out her neck and slither onto my arm as if we were old friends.

    I will be attending White Plains show and looking for one myself!
    Below is a pic of my guy, he was ridden with parasites when I got him, which took a huge toll on his lifespan, he only lasted with me for 2 yrs :(

    I am so sorry for your loss. Losing loved ones is never easy.

    Missabrat- I guess I missed hearing about your little guy. I am saddened by this news also.
