Could get ripped off.

I am going to post a whole bunch of photos of boas that are normals (classic) and probably dont have any strange genes in them. They should be sold for the same price as other normal boas or possibly only a few rands more.

They look a lot like other morph boas and if you dont know what to look for you could get ripped off. I will put what they look the closest to next to the picture and you can go google what these morphs can look like.



"Red Pastel"





This is why you buy from reputable breeders and insist on a "Birth certificate" if it is a morph that can be confusing like these listed above.

Proper pastels will go for twice the price of normals and the same with hypos and salmons which will cost considerably more. Jungles will go for about 10 times the price of normals. Insist on pictures of the parents if you buy these morphs and have any doubts.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

It's not just with boas, seen people selling pastel ball pythons that are actually just nicely coloured normals.
