Here is the latest edition to my collection. A yellow/orange amazon tree boa produced by Warwick (strictly snakes), picked this one up at the expo. Must say these snakes are incredible to keep.

And just a close up scalation shot, to show that deep orange/yellow colour.

They make excellent pets. I like when snakes are curious and these shure know what's going on around them.
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

Thanks all. She not aggressive, sometimes she will strike out, but not every time you go near her like many other amazons do. This snake has an infared heat lamp so as I go to bed I see her moving around her cage etc. Really cool.

@stretch what happened to the female?? or did I only sell you the male??

That would be nice to see some updated pics, so I can see how they differ to the ones I kept back and so mgiddings can see how his one might turn out
