  • PaPa's NEW Arrival....

    Ok let me start out with the story behind this little one...

    Back in April of this year i did a workshop and taught a PhotoShop Class at a school district that had heard about me...i got paid good money for it and used it towards the family, even though my wife was saying for me to use it however i wanted...i told her, if they hire me for another session i will use that. Well a few months later they called me up and set up another date to teach...i got paid good on that one too and this time i used it to purchase an animal from Jeff Carr...i bought BigMak a reverse Stripe from him...Jeff Purchased it as a breeding project as an adult and it turns out they gave HIM as a HER and he didnt have any use for him...so i ended up buying him.



    Well he ended up losing a battle with RI. I lost him back about a month ago...i didn't want to tell anyone for the easy common targets of..

    1. Does he have something in his collection that is killing them off...so NOW i won't buy form him once he has babies...
    2. He doesn't know how to take care of his animals
    3. Did he buy him that way from the breeder/seller

    People can think what they want...But when i bought him, he didn't show any signs...i don't really want to get into all that happened, so i will let be and let him rest.

    I didn't tell Jeff about it cause i felt he didn't have fault in any of it. So when i posted on an anery that was being purchased by Jeff...i said "He has really nice animals and i bought BigMak form him, but he passed away on me" I didn't mean that BECAUSE of Jeff that he passed on...only stating the fact that bigmak is no longer with me.

    Jeff read it and asked what had happened...after talking to him about it, he was a bit sadden that he passed on me and that i didn't let him know about it...i told him i didn't want to tell him cause i didn't want to make it seem as i was saying it was his fault...so i just let it be. HE THEN TELLS ME...I KNOW your into Stripes...so i am going to send you this little guy as a condolence for BigMak...He then stated "I take care of my customers" and people...I AM ONE TO AGREE WITH THAT!!! Jeff is as best as they come!

    Once again Jeff...THANK YOU!!!

    Great new addition Ernest! I too know what it feels like to loose a great boa. I lost a great looking anery back towards the end of the summer (her pic is in the calendar on April 6th). I never found out what caused her death and the rest of my collection is doing great. It was the only snake I have had die on me. Sometimes things just happen and it is no ones fault. I believe that some animals may also just have weaker immune systems and would never survive in the wild and even in captivity with excellent care may struggle. My condolences for your loss. Sounds like Jeff is a top notch kind of guy to deal with. Congrats on the new boa.

            What a good story and nice looking boa too! I gotta say I love the packing materials as well, I think the Crown Royal bag automatically ups the cool factor. I know this sounds gross but trust me...Tropicana Apple juice and Crown Royal (any whiskey really except for Jack Daniels).

                  For the record! LOL!
                  I am not a hard core alcoholic...LOL. I run the security crew at a downtown Portland Night club and have been collecting Crown Royal bags for this purpose for three years now. Tob Shelf packaging for Top Shelf boas and Top Shelf customers... IMO!

                        Sorry about BigMak bra. No one around here thinks that you can't take care of your animals or anything like that. I still want a Magik Cheeto. Plus, now I want a striped albino you're gonna make in a couple of years!

                        First albies, next thing you know, Steve-O will have you getting into BP's!
