Hmm. I'm by no means a snake guy, but I nevertheless found this interesting:

"Common Name: Columbian Rainbow Boa
Scientific Name: Epicrates cenchria maurus
Distribution: Northern S. America
Size: 5' - 7'

In captivity a large vivarium of at least
4' x 2' x 18" is recommended for this species.

These have been considered the 'poor relation' of the Brazilian form for some time. Patterned babies loose this with time to form a more uniform orangey brown snake with little patterning. Still make good easy pets."

cool snakes, but i would spend that money on a neonate brazilian rainbow instead.

columbians are great snakes, but not at that price i don't think.
