    Re: Kullah-Kullah the Jamaican boa

    Actually, any time you re-locate a snake, it's risky...they don't know their way around & do try to find their home turf. It's a gut-wrenching choice to make, for me, at least...knowing when their home turf is occupied
    by humans who "won't share" & just kill them, that their only hope to live is either in a new place or in captivity. It takes time for snakes just to find new hiding places (that aren't already occupied) where they'll be
    safe from predators and weather conditions, let alone find a mate & plenty of food. It's not as if they can stand on a hill with binoculars and say, "oh look, that looks good over there!" They need lots of luck to find...

    I gave him to a friend who is a biologist and avid snake lover, and wanted him for a long time! He is still alive and well.

    I was told that if they are kept for a long period of time (like when I rescued him and kept him for around two years) and then released back into "the wild", they will be at risk particularly as they will try to get back to their owner, and come upon misfortune and possible death by machete or other human encounter.

    Tammy, he is so gorgeous! But you said "had" as in past tense? Don't you still have him?

    Kullah-Kullah the Jamaican boa

    Trying to find some pics of the Jamaican boa I had and called "Kullah-Kullah" (say "color color"). I gave him that name because of the dramatic change of color half way down his body, which is typical of these Epicrates subflavus.



    OK then. There he is! Remember, the third pictures is ONE snake!

    These are classed as a type of Rainbow boa and are only native to Jamaica. They are semi-arboreal, can give you a really memorable dose of musk and can grow to ten feet or more if allowed to - that is, if they are left alone.
