Bahamian Boas

Posted by Sonja K. at 10/6/2011 7:40:27 PM

These 2 are about a year old now, so I figured it was time for some updated pictures.

Some of you may have read the article in a recent issue of Reptile Magazine that featured several of the Insular Epicrates. Ryan Potts, coauthor of that article was the one that produced these.

The Bahamian Boas (Epicrates striatus strigilatus) are also referred to as New Providence Island Boas, Nassau boas, and fowl snakes.

Here's the female first:


And then the male... he was on a feeding hiatus for a bit, so the female is a bit up on him size wise, but thankfully he's taken 2 meals in a row now.

His coloration is a fair amount lighter than hers, too.

Very nice, great to see these little beauties!   Do they musk you when you pick them up?

Very nice. My Jamaican decided he wants nothing to do with food. he has been off food for almost 3-4 months.

I love the variation in their coloration. And of course I adore the earth tone little ones.

Fantastic pictures as usual:D
