I am a total newbie to snakes and am considering buying a columbian red tail male or a Sonoran desert male boa constrictor. I have read the sonoran tends to be nippy which I am trying to avoid being that this is my first snake. A friend of mine has a femal columbian red tail which he eventually whishes to breed. Our hopes were to breed my male with his female. He seems to think the columbian would breed with the sonoran but I am skeptical. Is it possible? Would it produce nice neonates?
I am leaning towards the red tail. I should also mention I intend to feed only dead prey, I am told the sonoran seems to have better eating instincts. It is important for me to be able to get this guy eating dead prey asap.
