  • Which morphs are these?

    Hey everyone.

    I'm new to this forum, and I've joined because I have a young male boa and a young female boa, and when they reach breeding age/weight Id love to breed them. I'm new to boas, but not at all to herps and have had all sorts of stuff throughout my span of 23 years on this planet. Haha

    My questions are just what morphs are these? I believe my female to be simply hypo as the woman I bought her from told me, but I'm told my male is a jungle. I got him from Ben Siegal reptiles and when I was in the store they called him a jungle, but I think he might just be a normal BCI. Let me know what you guys think.

    This is the female:


    This is the male. He's a lot darker than usual right now because he's preparing for a shed. He's usually the typical light grey that all young BCI's have.

    Welcome to RTB!

    Unfortunately it appears that your pictures did not post. Most of the time, for new members, this has to do with the way you tried to post your pics and the fact that you are in moderation for your first few posts.

    The following link might come in handy, so check it out and give it another shot

          Thanks for the heads up guys - I'm usually pretty techno-literate so I don't know what happened. Haha let's give this a 2nd try.

              So the male is definitely not a jungle? The store told me he was a jungle, and the place I got him from has a pretty good rep. (Ben Siegal Reptiles) Keep in mind his colors are a lot darker in this picture than usual because he was about to shed, though I know jungle has more to do with the pattern of the snake as opposed to the colors. If he really is just a normal, I'm a little irked because I paid 125 for him when I see most baby normals sell for around 50-75... Sigh.

                Unfortunately, I do not see anything that screams Jungle.

                May not hurt to follow up with the breeder for clarification and details such as the parents of the litter he came from, etc.

                  i'm not seeing any jungle in that male either. For me, I am weary of "low-Expression" jungles. Though there are markers of very "wild-type" looking boas, that can set the jungles apart, I'd rather be SURE. Generally, there is a distinct separation in the top (dorsal) coloration and that of the sides (most boas do have some variation in this, it should be obvious not suttle). Also they tend to be missing saddle points. Those are the little triangles on the edges of the saddles that wrap over the sides. And finally as they color up into their adult coloration the take on a much more golden yellow appearance then a normal wild type.
