  • Quick Question about a pastel boa

    alright i never seen one in person before i thought i owned one which turned out to be a normal one but right now i have my pastel ball python up on the CL and someone offered a 3ft male pastal boa for it and i goggled what a real pastel boa looks like and the snakes looks the same. so my question is, is this a real pastel boa? they said hes lighter in person.

    Re: Quick Question about a pastel boa

    Pastel is basically a reduction in black. Ideally a pastel would only have black in the border around its tail saddles. This boa does have a little bit of reduction in black on the saddles but I wouldn't call it pastel. The saddles get progressively darker and its tail is very dark. It looks like a fairly clean normal to me. Of course, you could ask 10 people what they think a pastel boa is and get 10 different answers.

    Here's my male pastel for comparison. Notice how there is almost no black in his saddles until the tail.
