There are very few B. c. amarali in the country and I have not seen any silver backs. Not all silver backs look like this though.

The last pair of Amarali babies I saw went for about R8000 a pair I believe.

That looks much more like Boa constrictor longicauda (Peruvian longtail). These animals are significant by high contrast nearly black and white pattern. Head cross is typical.

That is mighty sad.Maybe one day when I am big I can import some and start a project ;)

@Trevor, glad to know there are other snakes out there which can look just as amzing

TrevorH I think you are spot on with the B.c. longicauda. The eye stripe looks the same and so does the colour but the cross is the thing.

There is talk that the Boa constrictors will be reduced to only two species. That does not sound right to me.

Flip these are all so beautiful. The first picture and especially the first one BV posted are amazing.
