Brazilian Rainbow Boas vary quite a bit in patterns and colors, so let’s see that variety!
I’ll kick it off:
Here’s our adult male, K’uychi (~1.2kg) who is an awesome Animal Ambassador in our science outreach group.
Here’s Mach’acuay (~1kg), our immature female. She’s more orange-y than our male, so if they decide to produce offspring some day, it will be interesting to see the colors they develop.
those are some beautiful babies!
I’ve never kept them, but I did find this one in the Peruvian Amazon.
Wild Rainbow Boa, Peru
Love the side-by-side of these two!
That’s amazing - great find!!
Here’s my boy Dr Strange (I call him Stephen)
They are some really stunning animals
Someone in my area just got one of these and posted in a fb group that they are looking to get rid of it…if I were a couple more years into the hobby I would jump at the chance. As it is I have higher priorities with BPs but I’m kinda bummed they look so incredible
I’d jump at the chance to have one of these guys as just a pet, if you can spare the room and the funds I’d really consider it if I was you. This could end up a future Deals you wish you had taken post of yours
Quick update: this started when a girl listed a baby rainbow boa in a reptile fb group I’m in. She said she had wanted a snake for a long time, got him and was completely terrified and needed to get rid of him ASAP.
I was not going to buy it but just messaged asking if I could help, gave her some basic advice and after seeing this thread I message her so see how she was doing and she said he ate, she’s started handling him and she’s going to keep him now and the advice was a big help. Feels good I hope she has him for a long time and enjoys him!
All the animals and this thread are so gorgeous!!! Congrats everyone!
Y’all are making me want a rainbow boa again. If I was gonna get one, I would get a bullseye BRB. But right now I have my sights set on a CBB fire skink. Not sure if I will end up going through with it if I keep seeing BRBs.
5yo female - jezabel aka jeezy. Super chill just like the snowman but the most stubborn of my 13 snakids. Typically shes trappin at night and slaying any beat like a true wordsmith… Semi Abboreal, she love trees. A true degenerate this 1 is.
