  • New arrival at Pandorasdad World HQ!

    There's a bit of a story here.

    So, way back on January 30th, B [MENTION=7407]zamora[/MENTION] posted this thread showing off her remaining hypo jungle and hypo babies...

    http://www.redtailboas.com/f18/eye-candy-73014/

    This pics prompted this response from me:

    And B responded with:

    I thought she was joking. She wasn't. She did talk to my wife via Facebook and found out that the condition for me being able to get another snake was that I had to have an empty cage.

    Then, in a cruel twist, a cage opened up in the most horrible way ever.

    Needless to say, that day sucked. But after a day or two of staring at that empty 421D, I knew I had to find a new occupant. So I talked to B and we worked it out. Then, just to whet my appitite, she posted this:

    She messaged me to tell me that she meant #13. And the excitement grew and the countdown was ON!

    She arrived today! Late, as per FedEx's usual incompetence. And she was stuck in my office all day. I had a co-worker who is cool with snakes snap a few quick pics with my phone:
    Just peaking out of her bag...


    Look at that belly!


    Yeah, you could say I was pretty stoked to finally have her!


    She had to go back into the bag after this. Most of my coworkers would flip their cookies if they knew she was even there! But once I got home, I could break out the DSLR and get some better pics!!

    The bag shot!


    Peek-a-boo!


    An overall body shot. I love that butterfly saddle. And the orange! I wish that I could make these pics convey how vibrant that orange is!


    Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close up!


    No luck on a tongue shot...


    That tail though


    She had had about enough of my shenanigans by then. She kinda coiled up and let me know she was done with the photo shoot. Who could blame her? She's had a busy couple of days travelling from Mississippi to California! So I am letting her settle in now. But I couldn't resist one last pic as she explored her new purple hide! Because that tail! Seriously!


    Thanks again to Berkeley Knebel (I even learned how to pronounce that name!) at Mississippi Morphs! This is my first jungle and I am stoked!!!

    4 out of my 7 snakes have come from members of the RTB.com family! That is something that I am really proud of!

    Thanks for looking! Let me know what y'all think!

      Awesome writeup there buddy. I'm so glad you like her but like I said, give her a few days and the color she has will blow you away with the blue, purple and orange on her sides. She is truly a beauty and I look so forward to watching her grow up under your loving care. Give Kim my love!

          She is absolutely beautiful! love that creamy color on her back. And yes, that tail is something great!

          Cool to see a belly shot, never really knew what a boas belly looked like compared to the ball pythons.

                            Thats too bad.. I was wondering if these hypo jungle boas have black, pink, or mixed color tongues. I You can think I am weird for wondering this lol, but before I got into boas all of my snakes had pink tongues and I always thought the black tongues on boas were very cool.

                              Her tongue is black.
