I have a Boa that was left in the mail slot of the front door of a building I live in. It was about 14 inches long at the time. It's been 2 1/2 years now. I lost the fear I had of it even though it has bitten me 8 times. It's 5'4", I think it's a female and I love my snake Wanda. She use to be very agressive but now is tame. I think someone was trying to scare me with it and I got suspicious when I got a call from a neighbor telling me that there was something on my door, come to find out it was a snake. The best pet I have ever had.
My husband and I currently own two Ball Pythons (3yrs.)&(8 months) and a Columbian RTB (1yr) and are totally content with their behaviors. Reluctant at first, due to my long standing phobia of snakes, I was quickly proved wrong and fell in love with them. Each snake has a wonderful unique personality and handles very well. Both pythons and the Boa react well to handling and feeding. Many small children have handled all three and never once has either of them showed any signs of aggression or fright. I would honestly recommend these pets to any one interested in a long lasting, easy-to-care for new family member.
Our 4th of july celebration of 2008 was quite a surprise to my entire family, because on that day we became the proud new parents of our lil' columbian RTB
We named him Fluffers and he is the most facinating animal I have ever owned (and I have owned a lot of animals)... scared at first handling him, me and my 2 young daughters developed a strong bond with him, in part because he is such a gentle creature. I never imagined that I would love him so, but I do, in fact we have started getting my other family members to show interest in them too. My cousin whom wouldn't even go in the pet store for fear of seeing one now comes to my home just to hold Fluffer. He has really made an impression on everyone he touches.
He is a great joy... and an educational experience for my children, one that they may have never known otherwise...
Hi, I have the pleasure of owning a bald python. His name is monty, and I also own a red tail columbia boa constrictor, her name is jade. Me and my girlfriend both love them very much, they are easy to care for and very easy to become attached to. We have had them for about a year now and plan on having them both for many years to come.
I have just bought two columbian RTB's. The one is a normal RTB which is my fiance's, and a pastel RTB which is mine. The normal RTB is very friendly but the pastel is slightly aggressive, but calms down when handled. I am in love with the coloring and the body style of these snakes. They are so beautiful.
I have a 7mo old baby rtb named Manasa, her name stands for queen of all snakes in hindu mathology. I have nothing but good to say about my pet, My family and friends all admire her and have over come fear of snakes. I understand the commitment for the years to come, having helped raise a wonderful rtb. Eve since passed of old age, I always wanted to raise my own boa, and we love her very much. Proud snake owner!
My son has a red tailed boa. Most of the time she is nice but about a year ago she bit my daughter and today she bit me. Do they go through aggressive times or is it something we've done?

A friend of mine has two red tails. They are about seven months old and are named Monty and Tony. They are quite large for their age but very gentle and friendly. Highly recommended for the beginner.

We own many snakes including corns, hogs, and redtails. We also own uromastyx, armadillo lizards and beardies. We love all of our reptiles very much but out most cherished is our rtb Nora. She is about a year old and is the nicest of all our snakes (uros are the nicest lizards=]). Red tails are great for all but keep in mind they do reach sizes up to 12 ft. and MAY be a bit nippy after eating (be sure to wach hands after handeling mice before getting your snake again). One thing, owners who feed their snakes in it's actual tank, take it out and feed it PLEASE! I will make your snake much more tame while trying to retrieve it from the tank. But anyway, we can not wait until Nora is atleast 7 ft! she is so beautiful and loving and we can hold her for hours and she loves it!
Hope everyone takes great care of their snakes!
I have had a few RTB's. They are very docile and loving snakes that I would recommend to beginners as well as experts. Do note before you buy, they get very big and require alot of attention.
