    Sorry for the crappy pic...this boa has a leapord patterned underside, salmon and beige colored mosaic. Super pretty. She was given to the shop as a red tail boa, Columbian but he has it labeled as Nicarguan because of the darkness of her topside. Any ideas other snake lovers?

    Could a leapord boa. A clearer picture with better lighting would help better answer your question

    I know its not a leapord boa, if it was it would be priced higher than it is currently. I am seeing if the shop has a better pic, I unfortunately do not. The coloration of his top reminds me of a black pastel ball python that the LPS has in his store right now (similar to below for the python:)[​IMG]
    The underside of him is this gorgeous mosiac beige/pink/black design, kinda reminds me of like an adobe hut roof tiles.

    Haha, yeah he doesn't think so either. Based on that picture it looks like the Jungle boa but when i google jungle boa, it was all orange boa's not the dark one. I think it might be the same morph as this one:[​IMG] which was labeled on the image search as: Motley Het T+ Albino Nicaragua Dwarf Boa Imperator. Or this one: [​IMG] which is labeled as caramel-albino. I'd need to see the underside but these two are definitely the right tops.

    So I fell in love with this boa and my wonderful boyfriend said I could get it :) we are looking for a new home for my frog as I would rather have this boa over the frog but I can keep both until the frog finds a home. His friend might take it or his cousins. Once I have the boa, I will post better pics of it. I am purchasing today but since I will be out all day and the lps is closed on Sundays I will pick the beautiful boa that stole my heart on Monday. The LPS said I could.
