      Default Columbian Red Tail and Sonoran desert boa

      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.

      Yes the sonoran and the comlubian are compatible. As far as I know you can breed any BCC or BCI together and produce viable offspring. There are a lot of people out there though that frown on crossing localities, due to wishes to keep bloodlines pure. I (arguably) have a sonoran and have not noticed him being nippy in the least except when he is in blue. Even then I get a good warning hiss so I can avoid being bitten. Perhaps Peaches or someone else with a sonoran can add their thoughts.

      Can an admin or mod move this thread to the morphs section maybe I can get some more info about the breeds I am dealing with. Thanks.

      Like Ralphthesnake said, it is possible. I would be slightly worried about how they are going to react around each other. I own a Female Redtail, and I just couldnt see breeding her with a sonoran. Although I think they would produce some beautiful offspring.
