    Hello HCN! I'd like to introduce you to some of my snakes... a collection that hit magic number 20 yesterday. (Ok, not sure why it's magical. Just take my word for it, k?) When these guys/gals hit maturity, we'll take the industry by storm and offer some of the most incredible boas in the hobby!

    So, sit back, relax and enjoy this edition of.... "The Boa Files!"

    Gorgeous looking Boa's! Drool worthy :)
    Is that a Dumerils Boa?

    Thanks Michele! You're close. Those are Madagascan Ground Boas. They're a cousin of the Dumeril's, from the more arid portions of the island.

    Thanks Joey. That begs to question; when/how does one know when to stop collecting? And when does collecting officially become "hoarding?" :)

    I think there is a line that can easily be crossed, maybe when you can't afford or don't have the time to properly feed and maintain your collection.

    Wow the markings on your BRBs (or are the Peruvians?) are stunning and the pink tones and patterns on the Madagascan Ground Boas are just amazing. Those are my two absolute favorite boa types.
    Thanks for sharing... feel free to post MORE pics :)

    Thanks again everyone.

    Andrea, my Rainbows are indeed Brazilian. Most are from Dave Colling (rainbowsrus) and I have a (tiny) pair of Bullseyes from Aubrey Ross @ Slipstream Serpents, among others.

    My opinion is when you have so many animals that the quality of care starts to degrade. Its also when the amount of care and money required causes you to neglect the other necessary things in YOUR and your family's lives.
    If you aren't paying your rent or your kids are going without so that you can provide for your collection its time to take a step back.
