Photograghed some BRB/RTB snakes

I found out a guy a few blocks from me breeds Brazilian rainbow boas and red tailed boas, I emailed him and we met up at a local state park for me to take some photos of them :D

First the Brazilian Rainbow Boa, they have scales designed similar to a prism causing amazing rainbow iridescence.

And the red tailed boa, they are a heavier bodied and much larger snake than the rainbow boa. So pretty, and a female is a handful when full grown

They are so pretty, if I didn't have Rosie I would want one. Bringing a boa or other large snake into the house is unfortunately way to risky for her.

Yea, Rosie and boas would probably not be a good mix. I'd be paranoid all the time about it, like having a child and a giant snake.

I would be terrified, after I told the breeder that he even told me that a snake he sold to someone ended up eating their parrot D: She had a really hard time after that and I think he ended up buying the snake back.

Thank you so much! I love them too, although the big one's do scare me a little.

Does the rainbow boa eat butterflies and poop unicorns? In all seriousness, very pretty and good photography, if you used flash I bet the rainbow would be bigger :)
