It is really good that you're so happy with boas. I've never kept one (just a bit big for my tastes) but they sound like lovely snakes.
Good thing is, I have no neighbors!! And many acres. Theres 5 house on my 4 mile rd. 2 ive known since I was about 20. 2 are family and known my whole life.
So it would have been fine. Youd have to be in a helicopter to see into my back yard. Or google earth. And I wasnt 100% sure I would have bought. Now my other house is different. And the one bad neighbor we had did call the cops on me for being outside with my 9 coral girl. Obviously nothing happened.
And none of us are perfect and follow all laws!! So I would be willing to break this minor bs law if I really wanted a retic. Why not? Cops or animal control dont scare me or make me nervous. Its a minor infraction. No issues with the btm yet. Lol.

It's a minor infraction for you and usually a death sentence for the animal because you're not given the opportunity to take the animal out of state to someone who can legally keep it.

Agreed. It's just too bad that some laws motivate other people to call the cops out of fear or hatred or ignorance or whatever.

Sounds like you have a nice place. I like country life, too.

Pretty much like everyone has said. All animals have own personalities. I have female boa that has a feeding response that could put a lot of Retics to shame, lol. Sweet as pie when she knows she's not eating though. One of my retics you can open door and once he knows he's not eating he will glide out and drape himself on me. Another once has huge feeding response then cage aggressive then flighty once out of cage. My 3rd retic has a neuro problem and you need the longest tongs you can find to feed or she'll tag you and hold!

We like it. I have a trout stream running through my property. Its only a 7 mile small stream, 3 wide but every once in awhile I catch a 20 brown. A buddys mom caught a 24 brown back in the 80s. Biggest I know of out of it.
At our age, country living is perfect. Our other house is in the city. It has its perks. Like food delivery. Lol. But as many gun owners know, having land is nice for shooting daily without interference from local police. And honestly, they like us down here in our little valley.

As stated, I know the lady who gets all illegal animals in Albany county. And shes a good friend. Ive hooked her up with albinos and sunglows for her rducation classes. Shes the only Nys certified animal rescue here in our county. Shes brought in any situation shes needed. So if I did decide to illegally own one, it would be safe. If they came to take it. And Im pretty sure tgat Dec is not coming for me and 1-2 illegal animals. If they wanted to do anything, they can bust people all day long on cl selling retics and burns. But they dont push that. Even in NYC they seem to not spend time trying to rid all the illegal animals owned bred and sold in cl.
But we dont need to worry about that anyways, Im not getting one. Only because of their nasty elimination process. Lol. My boas clean up nicely. Only the urates are like dried clay.

To be fair the glass door decorated with urate was unusual enough that it was worth a picture. It's more typical to have to clean up a pile of crap that a small pony may have left behind.

You should see the mess made when you have two fair sized Burmese in a large cage and one of them regurgitates a rabbit and they BOTH crawl all through it. I had to crawl around inside the cage to clean it. After that, I lost all interest in keeping big snakes.
