New addition to the snake family!
 
I just picked up this little guy this afternoon:

It's a (suspect) male hypo/salmon boa constrictor! I've also got a female pastel boa, and three ball pythons (as well as geckos, tarantulas and scorpions).

Anyone else on here keep reptiles or arachnids? :)

Hahaha I wish we had wild geckos where I live! Thanks!

If he is in fact male as I suspect He'll probably grow to be somewhere around 6-7'. Females are more around the 7-8' mark.

How lovely! I love his pattern. He is going to be gorgeous when he grows up.

I too have boa constrictors and about 11 other snakes, LOL. I am hoping to start a snow breeding project this coming season.

Hehe that's a great name!! I'll have to see if he's a goofy enough snake to pull that name off :P

Thanks :) I ordered him from a big local distributor/importer so I had no idea what he was going to look like when I got him. Needless to say I lucked out with this one!
