My Dumerills

I was quite surprised yesterday to feel how heavy my Dumerills Boas have got. They have not grown much in length over the past year, but they have definitely packed on the pounds. I was actually straining a bit to hold both of them at the same time.

They such beautiful boas! Pity they are so under appreciated. You have a very good looking pair there.

They are indeed as placid as kittens, excepting for feeding time. These guys have a vicious, brutally fast, feeding response.
They are absolutely georgeous, but I am convinced that it is not easy to breed them. In 3 years of breeding I have only 1 live baby to show, and yes the female is definitely big enough for breeding.
