  • How MANY Boa's?

    Just curious as to how many snakes you own...and how many
    you think "one" person should own/be able to care for responsibly.
    FYI...I have one baby Columbian Red Tail. The feedback is always appreciated, thanks in advance!

      Re: How MANY Boa's?

      8) This is a list of what i have....
      2-boas, 1 argentineXcolumbian, 1- BCI and another on the way-BCI rescue.
      2 -Jungle carpet pythons,
      7- Ball Pythons,
      2- corn snakes-1 loose,
      1- hognose snake,
      1- tiger reticulated python on his way in,
      any have plenty of room for many more plus unlimited supply of feeders.. I plan on getting a emerald tree boa in the future and another corn snake.. I think if you have the room and proper housing and can afford to feed and care for them properly, you can get as many as you want but only if you can meet these standards, i treat all my animals as if they was family not just a pet... 8)

        I have 1 cali king and 1 columbian imperator, As barricuda said you can have as many as you want as long as you can provide the proper care and time that each animal requires. I also agree with treating them as family and not just pets.

          This is a big list too ;D
          3 Columbian Red Tails.
          2 Guyana Red Tails.
          3 Cooks Tree Boas.
          2 Sumatran Red Blood Pythons.
          7 T's

          As you can see I only collect things in pairs or trios for breeding, I'm going to be busy this year as nearly all my stock will be able to breed this year. I think you need to look at what you can afford, and how much space you have, if you can look after a snake properly then keep as many as you want, just do it properly and dont overstretch yourself. I dont consider myself to have a lot of snakes but the few I do have take a long time each day to look after, especially the more demanding species such as the bloods and the cooks. Have fun ;D ;D

            at my house i have one red tail boa i really want another one badly and at our friends house he has a ball python thats my lil buddy and im trying to convince him he needs to come home with me, hehehe but but seeing as how the pythons and boas cant be housed together and all i have is the 3 tanks 1 feeding and 1 for each of my red tails the sec is empty waiting its new arrival. he wont come off the tank he wants an iguana, but im steady trying to get him. i take care of him alot water feeding ect he doesnt have that much time for him with work and all. we did have at one time 1 6ft red tail and a 3ft albino burmese but.. they are both not with us now we let the albino stay with my hubbys mom because she wanted him and they killed it by accident, and our red tail got really constipated while we were gone for the week end we found her when we got home. so much for baby sitters grrrrrrr`

                  I have 4 red tail boas and one python. I also have 5 cats, 2 rats and one tarantula (more on the way). As far as how many someone should have, is pretty much a case by case situation. Some shouldn't have more than one or two, some can handle hundreds, other shouldn't have any animals, children or anything at all!!!!! It pretty much depends on you.

                    2 adult bci's-1 female and 1 male
                    2 juvenille bci's 1f and 1 m
                    1 albino corn snake
                    2 brazillian rainbow boas 1 f and 1 m
                    1 cali. king snake
                    1 iguana
                    1 tokay gecko
                    1 house gecko
                    3 dogs
                    2 rugrats- 1m.9yrs-1f. 7yrs
                    1 wife
                    As for how many someone should keep , that just depends on how you can house and maintain them.
                    So keep as many as your budget and time will allow , if you like.
