 A few questions?

I’ve been keeping snakes since 2007. It all started with Fupa my Ball and it only grew. Now I have 2 balls, a Cal King, and a Corn. I had 2 Iguanas that I had to rehome with Friends when I moved out here but I was able to bring my snakes. Anyways I recently picked up a few Boas and trying to learn anything and everything I can about them.

I had a few questions that I can’t seem to find the answers for.

My baby red tail Aria has a pinkish coloring on her sides that she didn’t have before. I was just wondering if that was normal, or should I be worried?

Another Question was about my other boa I got at the New England Expo in NH, what morph is she? She was so beautiful that I got her without asking what morph she was. Haha


here are some pics...


Here is Aria the baby these pics don’t really show the pink. What do you think?










Here is April O’Neal

 A few questions?

two nice boas you have there. The pink on Aria is totally fine. Many boas will develop pink on their sides as they get older. Some will start just the other way, and then it will fade. April O’Neal is a Hypo (Hypomelanistic) It’s a co-dominant genetic mutation. Basically if you bred April, you would typically have a litter of half hypo. Here is a great link that will answer your other questions! Link

There are other parts, so just check those out after part one!

Congrats on the pick ups!!
