Why is it that so many people jump so quickly to the idea of "crossbreeding"?

You didn't say whether you had a tree or ground boa...I don't know for certain, but I would imagine that your Solomon Island boa could be bred to other Candoia species. Or were you thinking about something more bizarre, like maybe a hypomelanistic BCI or an emerald tree boa?

You are correct in your statement that relatively little is known of the Candoia group as a whole, but there are some people that have been working with them and helping to change that. Jerry Conway, for one, has some fairly informative articles...If you haven't already seen them, they are worth taking a look at.

I contacted Jerry a couple of months ago, and he is selling entire collection of solomon island boas...

Wink

i wasnt planning on breeding or cross breeding ,it was just a topic of coversation

are his articles on line or in the periodicals
as far as my snake being a ground or tree ,im not sure but i would guess by his robust appearance that he is a ground but i have seen pictures of the tree solomons and some look remarkably similar
i havent read anything that clearly outlines the differences
thanks for the name though i will give it a try on my searches
