    My best friend is getting another boa (remember Khan?) well this time its a Colbumbian rainbow boa and shes paying 140£ for it!!!!!!!! the guy says they only grow to about 4 foot and the one shes buying is just under 4 foot he says its almost full grown!

    Anyone please tell me if shes getting ripped off 140 quid for a snake its just stupid to me lol
  2. 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.
