    Well my parents went Christmas shopping today and went ahead and got me and my brother an early Christmas present. He got a Nintendo DS. I finally got a boa constrictor!! I think I came out on the better end. I believe she is a BCI but I'm not for sure. I will post pictures soon. She was from one of the broods from a local reptile shop. I am already in love with her. They sexed her and they also said she was born in July. She ate today at the reptile store, which is awesome. I can't wait for her to turn into an 8-10 foot snake!! I have been waiting patiently for my parents to get me one and now my wishes have been I named her Kaa, even though the snake off of the Jungle Book was suppose to be a reticulated python and a guy.

    Well, I really enjoy having a snake that I don't have to worry about darting away. I have had my boa out a couple of times today. When I go to put her back into the 30 gallon she is in right now, she tries to climb back up my arm to get back out. It is adorable. I do have some bad news though. I believe she came with a respiratory infection!! While she breathes I hear a popping sound and this morning I saw a bubble form and then pop from either her mouth or her nostrils. The front of her mouth looks like it might be a little swollen, but I can't tell. I will try to get pics of it. We are going to talk to the reptile shop and then take her to a vet. I hope she gets well. I am so worried!! I am about ready to pull my hair out.

    Congratulations on the early Christmas gift. If she has an RI it hopefully is not too advanced and just a vet visit with some medication and bumped up heat will take care of it. Keep us posted.
