Indonesian Tree Boa

Today at my favorite pet store down town, I saw for the first time a little Indonesian Tree Boa that they had at the counter. I was able to hold him and he was just amazing, completely took my breath away. So I'm wondering if anyone here has ever worked with them before? I know I want my next snake to be an arboreal one, but I was going to go with a carpet python, cause I'm completely in love with these guys too. So what are yall's experience with these types of boas/pythons? Thanks!

I've kept Solomon Island tree boas, similar to the indos (they get a little bit bigger/girthier). They're great snakes as long as you're ok with dealing with the volume of waste they produce, and their pee is like glue.

They are personable small aboreal snakes that are easy to house and handle. My SITBs liked a water dish big enough to soak in (change it frequently, they will defecate in it). 92Fish hot spot going down to whatever (mid to upper 70s).

They tend to like frogs and lizards and geckos as food as WC, but they can be weaned onto rodents. They have a very slow metabolism to be careful not to overfeed.
