    I might be buying a sunglow red tail boa. I'm not sure if it's Bci or bcc but I showed my friend a pic of it and he thinks it's a ball python. What do you think? And how can I be sure if I do get it. Normally I wouldn't worry. But some how he convince me it might be a ball. Haha.

    Looks like a boat by the coloration of the tail. But to be sure a python will have visible pit holes below the nostrils. In boas they don't show.

    Your friend is mistaken. Its a boa constrictor imperator morph

    Boa. The tail pattern is characteristic of redtails. Ball Pythons have a wider head and they are much more stout-bodied. This is a 100% boa and a really pretty one at that:)

    Thank you! I knew he wasn't a ball python. But my friend was convinced other wise so I needed to prove wrong. He is a pretty snake. I'm suppose to pick him up on Sunday. Thanks for you help.

    Its a BCI albino common boa. There are no true red tail morphs so it is not a BCC. Def not a ball python :)
