I got the call today from Richard, and picked up his (now *my*) Argentine boa, Tina. Now I've got a big snake of my own! :-P Well, not that big. Right now she's about 5 1/2 feet long. She has a totally sweet temperament. Tonight three people took turns handling her while I installed a wire cage around her heat lamp to keep her from playing on it. (Got one more cage to go, over the compact flourescent I put on the other side. She already used it for furniture today, so it's turned off.) She was a little jumpy, but settled down and was very inquisitive. She really liked my hubby's ear. :-) Tommy was reluctant to hold her, and is still reluctant for me to have her, but he warmed up a bit tonight.
So, here are some pics! I'll take a closeup of her face later, I didn't want to spook her too much. She's a bit headshy.

Isn't she gorgeous?!

She's lovely Jenn! ... although my personal preference is for a much lighter coloured body, like the Sonoran, and a more distinctive tail. I've actually got my eye on a beautiful pair of breeders and hoping to get one of their babies next year Emotion: big smile
I love your cage design ... what did you use to paint it? ... is it just normal wood gloss? and how long did it take for the fumes to clear out? I need to build some larger enclosures for my own snakes some time next year so any tips would be great Emotion: wink
You do know that now you have one snake you won't stop there dontcha! Emotion: big smile

Yup, she's gorgeous, Jenn, and she looks like the sort that would watch TV with you. I hope Tommy falls in love with her soon.

Wow, absolutely! Congrats! I really LOVE my two boas too, and it's just too funny when they take a look at your ear and blows air into it, so cute! :-) Here's my 7 feet female, thinking she's a treeboa, haha:

And here's her lovely head...

...which I have a lot of respect for when it's feeding time! She nailed me once, even tried to hold on and constrict my hand, I'm sure she would have eaten it if I haven't made quite an effort to make her let go!
And here's my cute male together with her, he's just sooo much in love with her! They always lay together, and he often takes a ride on her back when she moves, it's really cute! :-)

Ahhh she's lovely! She reminds me of a bowl of ice cream I ate last night...

I'm dying to know how much she weighs! Our scales go up to 19 lbs, you know. )
Now I REALLY need to get down there to visit... darnit...
