Thought I’d share some pics of my baby. Diamond is a male, Colombian red-tailed boa constrictor. I got him on Dec 23rd, 1998, as a Christmas gift. He was 8 weeks old, I was 10.

Almost 15 years later and he’s flourishing. I used half of my tax return last year and got him a fabulous Boaphile cage that he absolutely loves! (My cat, Salem, loves using it as a perch too, as you can see).


Diamond turns 16 in October and is currently between 6 and 7 feet long.

Just wanted to share and show how it is entirely possible to own a large constrictor as a pet responsibly.
