I still think this is all the work of one person? I'm not going to get in the middle of it though. I will take my time and money somewhere else after all this crap. Don't get me wrong I hope it is infact a Pied Boa, I think with some work it could be as amazing looking as the Pied balls. But for now its just a normal boa with odd markings.

WHY CAN"T ANY OF YOU SPELL WORTH BEANS, you guys must have had the same teachers in school. I thought ebonics was only over here in Oakland Ca.

So is it Bryan, Brian, or no Brains


Hmmmm raising rifle with this and keeping it locked and loaded

Just my .02 Rick Leverock used to live in Miami. But I do know that he has or had alot of nice boas when he moved to pinellas park there in St Pete.
Alot of different types. I am sure the first person to show a piebald Ball python was told there was no such thing also but that does not mean that it does not or could not exist. Statistically unlikely but it could be.

Also I would think that you would not be able to see the scales if it were a burn, I might be mistaken but it does look like you can see full scales where the white colors are.
to the person that said the colors cant change on a boa.
I personally had a boa a long time ago that within one year its color completely changed from the normal columbian colors to a deep scarlet red all over. I was not up on morphs or even "Designer" anything back then just making a living and sold it for 200.00 thinking her just a pretty snake. And how about them Hogg Islands, they change color according to their mood, temperature, etc.
Give the guy a chance to prove himself.
I do think 1000.00 is too much but I believe worth is strictly a perceived notion. What is worth to one is not to another.

Defenitly a normal boa if you ask me. I'm betting its a kid, who's boa was attacked by a rodent, and now won't feed. Now he is trying pawn it off so he doesnt have to deal with it.

Mike thank you for your input, alot of people thought the same and I was not sure either until I had my boa as well as amens boa checked by to reptile specialist vets. No one who has made replys on here has giving me proof of a alleged injury, if you have proof of a injury to either snake, please send it to me. At this time, I have gained proof from the National Reptile Vet from the Daytona Show as well as a highly respected reptile vet in Miami on both these animals that the markings were not caused by a injury. Now regarding the 1000 dollars, amen posted his up for that, and I never considered selling my male. Is it high like Jewell has said, I believe so too for being un-proven. I have both animals in my collection now and I will be working hard with them. I also have babies from my male to two normal apearance columbians. We will see if it is or not in a least two years, amens boa can not breed this season to find out. Any further questions mike regarding these animals, please feel welcome to e-mail me. Jewell, please e-mail me too, I miss you in Florida and would love to hear from you, mike and jewell, my e-mail is, all of you have a great day. Rick

Since this was bumped, the photos of the boa from Vegas no longer exist or aren't easily accessible enough to make it worth finding them.

I will still say however that I have seen boas with white markings, centered in an orange marking that did not appear like any other injury, scar or burn I have ever seen and appeared to be purely the result of some odd pigmentation. No idea what genetic basis may or may not have been present and calling anything het for pied is absurd unless it's a known genotype, but such markings do exist which are not scars.

I only read about half this thread. I want to say that looking at the pictures my first thought was "scars" and still feel that way. I use to work at a pet store and say many sickly snakes (i realize you guys are around snakes all the time to, but not necessarily sick/scarred snakes like i have been). Well, its very charisteristic of a healed/healing burn/scar.

I also wanted to note that a vet could look at a single boa and classify it as pied. Pied, by definition, is not necesarrily genetic but simply the presence of the white scales. If any snake has abnormal white scales from birth, they are pied scales wether or not it is genetic.

Oh, and dont buy this sickly looking scarred snake. peace.
