So I saw a BEAUTIFUL snake on craigslist....oh common, let me finish...lol...Anyways, I have been keeping ball pythons for 5 years and breeding them for 3. I saw an awsome looking snake at a local reptile expo about 2 years ago and wanted one. Turned out that it was a Viper Boa. Well, I did not end up leaving the show with it.. 2 years later I see this snake on craigslist that I had never seen before, and I have been to 6 NARBC shows in my life. So I ask the guy what kind of snake it is, and he tells me that it is a Isabel Ground Boa....so my attraction to this snake is parallel to the attraction to the viper boa, but THIS ONE HAS MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL COLORS (in MY opinion of course) So I tried to do typical reasearch about them, and I come to find out that there is not a whole lot about these guys. So, here I am.

I will be picking him up in about a week, and will be doing a typical quarentine as I am not sure if it is CB or not, but he did say that he is taking f/t small rats, so that is a good thing. I have read some forums about how these guys like frogs and anoles and what not. So it will be nice to avoid that.

So any tricks, tips, info, experience, congrats, ect. are welcome as I am really looking forward to having a bunch of ball pythons and then a rogue Ground Boa in my collection....Im very exited to finally venture out beond just one species of snake. So anything you can tell me about these guys is supper welcome!!!

History?, Husbandry?, Morphs(if any)?, Temperment?, Rarity?, Ect.
