"Had" is the operative term, lol. Several factors led me to leaving boa breeding and now I have one very old nicaraguan that was rescued by a dear and departed friend and an albino cornsnake, lol.

Okay. Iím fine with her being a normal itís just she was sold to me like she was something else. Should I confront the breeder? Itís not too big of a deal because itís not like she was sold to me as a super nice animal or anything but still. I didnít think this would happen because the breeder is pretty professional & seems reputable and they deal with super duper nice boas 🤷🏼♀️

I didn't say the boa *wasn't* a pastel, it has some reduced black and may color up nicely once the baby grays fade off, but it's not one that I would look at and say 'oh hey, that looks like it's from a pastel line'. It looks more like what an average baby boa would look like with some nice light brown fading of the saddles.

I was mainly trying to point out that unlike ball pythons where Pastel is an actual morph, pastel is not a morph in boas. "Pink pastel" is just a descriptive term. Some people sell pastels from lines that have been bred for generations to make high pink boas, others sell anything with reduced black as a pastel.

If I was you, I'd ask the breeder for photos of the parents to get a judge of what kind of coloration you may be able to expect for you baby (assuming there's no hypo in the mix).

It's hard to confront people on things like pastel as it's not a morph but a description of a few physical traits. If he had sold it as a hypo or a jungle, there would be an easy argument. Like high red bearded dragons or high yellow carpet pythons, it's more of an individual opinion. What some would call high red, people who have been working with high red beardies for a long time would not. I developed two lines of pastel boas and have owned animals from many other bloodlines. For me, that animal doesn't meet my standards.For someone who doesn't work with boas much and is used to very dark animals, they might call that animal a pastel which they've heard used for nicer normals and that's all they know of the whole thing. Basically, I doubt the person purposefully misinformed you but just either didn't understand what pastel was or just have very low standards for what they call pastel. It's more of a spectrum than a hard separation, if you get me.
