    the stars sort of aligned beautifully for this pic I sure as hell did nothing to make it look this good its all Tiago I just luckily had my camera within reaching distance, as for him despite being told rainbow boas can be fiesty him and Sango my argentine are both sweet as can be so puzzling.

    This is him when he is in the mood for a cuddle.

    He is currently living in this but I need to get something better
    I have ordered a viv but he is to small right now for even the smallest of vivs.

    rainbow boas have a gorgeous iridescence which isnt easy to capture on a photo. really beautiful snakes , one of my favorites.
    they usually have lovely docile temperaments when adults , making them fairly easy to keep if you can handle their humidity requirements :)

    he is goregous their base color is bland but their scales create rainbows in the light, its like oil on the surface of water its pretty amazing, temperment wise as a baby they can be fiesty but I have found slow movements and gentle handling is working just fine, I bought a stack of wooden vivariums and they are coming monday will seal them up and heopfully that should be a good home for them for many years.

    I do like them a lot and if I had the space they would be my next choice after a hoggy!!! I guess it's the iridescence in the photo I can see then, looks like my corn when he's in blue(':

    Hoggies are WONDERFUL!
    I have a little one called Boss Hogg he is adorable, bit strikey at first which is nerve racking as they have fangs and a venom that some people are allergic to but he is calming down with time, also he doesnt get big so his exoterra can be his home for life.
    Will say one thing he loves to climb he has branches mounted in the foam of his exoterra and he loves it.
