Q: Red Tail Boa: Morph or Normal?
Posted By:


I am new to red tail boas, and I don't know much about the different morphs. The lady I bought the red tail off of said she was a 1.0 Colombian red tail, but I wanted to get other opinions. She has a lot of dark colors near her tail, but almost a pastel looking head. I have provided pictures of her. She is about 6.5 feet long. Also, I am looking for a new tank for her. Any suggestions? Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like you have BCI in there.

That looks like a Normal to me.

Thanks for the responses. I'm new to red tail boas, but this one is extremely sweet! She's only 3 years old, so I don't know how long she'll get. I am working on getting her a bigger tank. What is the best hide-away "cave" for them? I have tried to find one, but haven't found one big enough.

Upside down cat litter bins with a big enough hole cut in the side work well, I also use plastic washing bowls, darker the better. Using a soldering iron works well to cut the hole.

I second a small kitty litter pan. They clean up nice and easy.

That's a left handed Tazmanian Ground boa !

Thanks again for the responses! I believe the cat litter pan will be perfect for her. I fed her tonight, and she did great. I was a bit worried she wouldn't eat because of her move to her new home.
