Odd/Exotic Pets..........
« on: November 06, 2012, 07:28:22 PM »
What's anyone got for the strange, odd, exotic type pets. This is some pics of Bobo my Red Tailed Boa constrictor. A nurse I worked with 16 years ago gave him to me after threatening her son she was going to give him away if he didn't take care of it. I had a pair of bull snakes for several years that mated and laid 14 egs that hatched before so I said why not. I got Bobo when he was the size of a pencil and could barely get down pinkies (baby mice). Now he's a bit bigger and easily gets downs squirrels. He just got down the biggest squirrel yet as a matter of fact just a few minutes ago. The Warden hates him if course, but she's had 16 years to get used to him :-D I do have some pics of him feeding too if you'd like, never stops amazing me how much they can open their mouths, really kind of fascinating!

Bobo looks like a pretty smart snake. Aren't they supposed to be bigger?

Oh, He's about 5-6 foot long, almost as thick as a bat in the middle. A 12 foot boa is VERY big, usually top out around 10. Here he is eating a pretty large squirrel.
