Talking Boa constrictor imperator x 2 [pics]

I don't have many larger snakes on my dream list, but common and red tail boas as well as a carpet python and rainbow boa are on there. Cleo having passed away and Paprika still not showing up, I've 'only' had my corn (Frank) and my royal python (Theodore) to look after. Oh, plus my lodgers Kenyan sand boa who I clean, feed and handle. He got her from the breeder as a sorry gift after losing Cleo within days of bringing her home and he called her Medusa. Well anyway. I wasn't really intending on adding any big snakes in the near future but a lady was desperately trying to rehome two 8 month old BCI with their enclosure for £70. I took the lot. The set up is enormous but when they're fully grown only one will be able to be in it so instead I'm having a sort of double stack type of thing custom made for them. I suspect my beardie, Hershel, will be enjoying their current tank in the fairly near future They have been housed together since she had them and they're both siblings. Feeding them outside of their enclosure stops any accidents happening and although housing snakes together is generally frowned upon, they are fine for now. I'm unsure on their morphs as of yet, but I believe they're salmon? One is very light and has a lighter red tail and the other is darker and more pink. Anyway, the lighter of the two I have named Atlas and the darker Osiris

Here's Atlas







Osiris I have less photos of at hand because up until now he was shedding and he was VERY grumpy. I took one yesterday though



I really can't wait for them to get a big bigger. I love their adult size, not too much for one person to handle. Nothing like Burms or Rectics!

I've always had a slight interest in the small constrictors. These 2 are beautiful! All reptiles love me as I'm always warm. My ex had an iguana when we met and we had a few more over the years. And a couple beardies. A buddy had a small python who loved to curl up on my chest whenever we'd go over there.

Thank you I absolutely love reptiles. Since making the decision to not have birds in the house again (aviaries for me now) I have finally been able to start keeping more. I had a corn snake a few years back who my friend had to foster for me because he once escaped (there was a lock on his viv) and I was petrified if given the chance he'd of had one of my birds. I have yet to take him back, but he's loved there so I will probably let him stay there. When I moved into this house, a girl I went to college with contacted me and said I need you to take this snake off me. So I did. Another corn, ironically the same enclosure and almost the same looking snake only this one was a lot more aggressive I ALMOST rehomed him, but when the birds passed away there was no need and since then I've been able to plan what I can have realistically. They're extremely easy to look after once they're set up but my electricity bills are a tad higher Feeding them is very cheap though

These two won't be THAT little when they're bigger hehe. I mean, they're no anacondas or rectics or burms, but still bigger than me My fiance had a Burmese before, but they bought her big and couldn't handle her needs and had to give her to a local zoo. She's now on display
