    Re: largest boa?

    HI,
     The True redtails are proably the largest, BCC. I believe the BCI make the best pets. Its up to you and your ablilty to provide a large enough cage. I keep a two year old BCC in a 2/2/6 ft cage this will proably be to small in another year.
     2/2/4 is proably large enough for one BCI
    here's some pics of a BCC I've raised.

    I found her in the hide with her friend..Rudy


    The next PIC  is of a young BCI male from Mr C. English
    he's going to be a real beautiful male

    you sound like you considering a purchase, my suggestion is to buy the biggest cage you can afford from some on like the Boaphile with built in heat and set that cage up before you buy a snake. DOn't even look at a glass tank.They can cost a bit when you add in the heat and thermostat and really donot hold heat or humidty a forty critter is 80 Bucks and a heat pad is almost 50.00 plus 35.oo for a thermostat and you stil have to find a way to hold that heat and humidty in the tank...
       [ftp]http://www.boaphileplastics.com/[/ftp] he pays the shipping so the price you see is what you pay.
    My favorite model I wish I had four now,
     
    (Same cage as shown above but this time with the 1/4" Acrylic door wide open. The plastic barrier on the front of the shelf is screwed on so you can remove it if you need to clean on the permanently glued in shelf. Total floor space over ,16 Sq FT.. Boas love the shelf and spend most of their time up there hiding. They normally deposit all waste below and the shelf area stays pretty clean. )
    They are stackable and come with heat already built in all you need is a thermostat. Hold humidty .... The perfect cage..
