New addition, Inca poss het Burke/Stone T+ female

This girl arrived this morning and I’m excited to watch her as she grows.
I’ll have to decide what projects I want to inject her into, but that is always fun to work out.

Wow she is beautiful! :heart_eyes: I am a beginner with snakes and still learning- is she a common boa (B. constrictor, I think)?

In all seriousness @randall_turner_jr that has to be one of the nicest boa I have ever seen! Truly spectacular!

She’s a Boa Imperator, from Central American origin animals. She’s an Inca, which is I believe an incomplete dominant trait, with the homozygous form I believe being similar but cleaner than the heterozygous, but im not terribly informed on the morph other than basic info. (Hard to find definitive info anymore with so many of the old forums shutting down)

Thanks everyone. Im happy to have picked her up.

The original Inca was a Nicaraguan animal (dwarf). I believe the gene was proven by TSK, or at least, they popularized it. I’ve been want to add an animal like yours to my Nicaraguan group, but so far I don’t have room for another larger snake.
