    I find strawberry pots good for smaller snakes.

    I might start using them when my diamond gets bigger, I like that idea.

    This is not a diamond but it works well for smaller snakes that like to climb, this one had outgrown it.

    Hey man, photos can be deceptive when it comes to trying to visualise the size of a snake, given close-ups and zoom etc so, please inform me, how big is that boa, because it looks huge. :D

    Ah yep I see now, looking at that head in the previous pics, I was visualising something as thick as my leg and twice my height. LOL Seeing it now, looks the same as our Coastal carpets (size wise). Nice looking animal mate.

    Thanks Aussiepride83 that was taken last year so he’s grown a bit since ,but I don’t think he’s going to be massive anyway,he will probably top out about 6ft which is quite alright by me ,I can fit about one and half hands round his fattest part

    Yeah nice, I'm only 5'8" tall mate so he'd be bigger than me. LOL
    I've got a mate who's got a nice sized Scrub python which makes me properly nervous whenever we take it outside for a stretch in the sun, he's a 2 person job. He'd be quite a bit bigger than your Boa is now and that's more snake than I want to handle. LOL Demands a lot of respect. I keep my Jack Russell Terriers well away from him at all times.

    Yes I think I would deffo keep a jack Russel away from him too, my biggest boa ive got is a 7ft male and he’s more than enough as he’s really chunky bigger than a lot of men’s fore arms, luckily he’s a big softie too, but still have massive respect for him and won’t have him round me neck just incase

    Agreed, honestly, I've never understood the whole "around the neck" thing with large pythons... It only takes about 16 pounds of force to snap the average human neck, and any hefty python is more than equipped to deliver that. You might as well just play Russian Roulette.
