Three Years of Sunny the LamBoa Growing Up

I have always loved reptiles. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with dinosaurs and that grew into an interest in their distant relatives. I have had a lot of herpetological pets – iguanas, bearded dragons, salamanders, frogs, a leopard gecko, a ball python, and a few tortoises. In October 2012 we went to a local reptile show and bought a Sunglow Albino Boa Constrictor. We named her Sunny the LamBoa. She lacks blue and black pigments due to the albinism but she has an increased amount of red. She was a few months old when we got her and she is about three now. Today she is about 6 feet long. Here are some photos of her growing up.

    Whoa! Nice! What to you feed her at the various points of growth? Mice?

      Yes. Small, medium, and then large mice. Now she eats large rats.

    You’re remarkably brave, putting her on an engine bay. In my experiences with snakes, they love wedging themselves in places they can’t easily be extricated from. And not many places are more crowded than V-8 Mercedes engine bays.

      She didn’t hang out there long. Very good point.
