Beautiful collection so far.. I currently only own 1 of the 3 i had

Current one I own is a 2008 Suriname Redtail Boa Rocky he is about 5ft and quit the ladys man =)

Have Owned;

2003 Normal Ball Python (male) Simon was 5foot 11inches which is really big for a ball but he was male which makes it really big.. this was the 3rd ball from his clutch that made it to the 6ft mark.. Was Stolen out of my house last year.. also to add i never power feed him..

Albino Burm (Female) China Reached out 9 Foot probably the mose Agro one I have even from a Hatchling she was always agro and never calmed down no matter how much i handled her or played with the humility

Thankz i wish i could find my newer pics of them >.<


China has been a biter since she was hatched and I wouldn't sell her or give her away to anyone with such a Temper... unless it is someone that had lots of Experience seeing the size she would grow to be... She was really cage agro but once i got her out with my hook she would calm down to me, but if anyone came near me or in striking range she would strike... like i said no matter what I did she wouldnt calm down... i did find out that she loved being out side and was great to hold if you didnt let her go completely if you still had at least one hand on her tail when you picked her back up it was fine but if you let her go completely i had to use the hook and put her in a bag to get her back to her cage for she was to agro to take her inside without it.. her parents both normals were caught in the wild.. And had the same Temperment..From what the Herpetologist told me when i bought her from him was that when the male and female (parents) were cought they were in a dryed up stream in what seemed to be a turtles den...


China passed away 4 months ago at 9 Foot unknown causes of death Humidity was dead on, with good hot and cold sides.... RIP Girl..

Very nice, Twitch. Balls are a good snake to start working with when it comes to breeding and it seems you have a good start. I would highly recommend breeding the pinstripe with the pastel. I am imagining a type of "bumblebee" (pastelxspider) that would be really nice to see. I used to have a nice collection, everything from super pastels- axanthics, hogg island boas- anacondas, Argentine boas- rattlesnakes. lol Literally everything. I worked at an exotic animal store, however; and that made it much easier to load up.

I've done a bit of breeding, and if you want help/need any advice I would gladly help you get started on it!

Take care!

My tanks include:

55 Gallon Freshwater:
2x Marineland 350 filters
1x rena heater
1x powerhead
No special lighting

29 Gallon Freshwater:
Marineland 350 filter
Rena heater
No special lighting
46 Gallon Bow front Planted Tank:
Rena Canister Filter
Marineland Biowheel Filter
Rena Heater
Rena Powerhead
Coralife 196 w/ LED lighting (4w/gal)
10 Gallon Freshwater:
Basic components (Goldfish/ aquatic frogs for kids)

COMING SOON! 10 Gallon Nano!
