  • Somethin wrong?

    Hello everyone, My name is James and I will be joining the red tail fan club! anyway! ive had my snake like 4 days and well I was wondering, is something wrong with me buying him/her from the pet store? I hope not cause I paid good money for him! $120! and thats a lot when ure unemployed! Anyways....i know theres a lot of ways to tell the sex....I named mine ozzy hoping hes a guy has good sized spurs...if i get time ill get a pic and yall can me what yall think. BTW....his tail isnt necesarrly red, should i suspect the color of his tail to become brighter? or somethin? thanks for your help.

    Yes and No
    Okay the first thing is he in good health?
    If he is then theres no reason except that he may be WC from not buying a pet store snake. There are positives from buying from a pet store as well. For the most part though your better off buying from someone like Clay. You get what you pay for.
    The positives from buying from a pet store is that you can hold it see where it lives and things like that.
    The negatives are they a usually are WC and have parasites.
    If you buy from Clay you get a CB Boa that has been fed rats its' hole life and is in good health. So for the most part it's better to buy from a reptuable breeder.

      PS you posted this in the pic forum. I would move it, but I don't have that kind of power.

          WC mean wild cought. Your boas tail is more than likly not going to get any brighter if anything its going to get darker.
