    These are pretty crappy pics, but here is Panda, my BRB! She is 55" long and about a year and a half old, possibly older. She was a rescue from a pet store - the manager didn't like snakes and so she gave her to me for half off. She was in a bone dry 10 gallon tank and the manager was too scared to feed her.

    Are they rainbow in some spots, or do you see some rainbow colors when the light hits it the right way? By the way, beautiful snake!

    Thanks!!!

    Beardie, their scales work like prisms, they aren't rainbow colored unless light hits them. The rainbow sheen usually does not come up from direct light, it usually has to be from an angle. So you can tell where my camera flash hit her stright on in the pics, it is not rainbowey.
    Did I just make any sense? LOL...

    Awesome. I trust that picture is after some time in your care? or is she new (because she looks too healthy to have been neglected much)

    55 inches? Isn't that on the larger end of a BRB?

    I can't wait till mine gets that big!

    Thank you all for the compliments.

    Reptile_kid I am jealous! I want a colombian sooo bad!
    Dragoness, She has been in my care since March 2008. She is not on the larger end, she still has lots of growing to do. Females can get 6 feet, and it's definately not unheard of to have a 7 footer female. 55 inches is only about 4.5ft.

    She is very beautiful indeed. I am trying to imagine them in their natural habitat. How on earth do they hide from prey with those colors?

    Sounds to me like the "manager" needs to find a new line of work!

    She looks to be doing well in your care.

    I have read numerous sources on the adult sizes of BRB's and none of them agree, hence my confusion.

    Yeah, I understood what you meant! :) (That's funny how whenever someone types my name, the computer thinks it's a short cut for beardie!)
