i would rather deal with other things also--like readjusting my lines without the bite of boa---it only took 4 he man security guys standing around snerking while one flaco maintenance man removed it with a forked stick..lol was rather humerous to watch.

Boa Constrictor. I think they look really neat but they're not very interactive as a pet and some of them don't domesticate very well and bite. When they're small the bite isn't very bad, like a bunch of small pin pricks, but I have other things I'd rather deal with.

If you can get him to tie himself to the cleat with an official cleat hitch that could make you some money on utube.

Yea, but who is going to lick them to see which end tastes bitter?

I have always loved seeing snakes in the wild, and we have our share on my property, mostly Black Snakes, Garters with the occasional Water Snakes (actually quite aggressive) and some Eastern Rattlers. But have no interest in having them as pets. I like to hold and feed them but would not keep one myself.

I'm pretty sure that it's a Boa. It looks just like my Columbian Red Tail.
