    Hi there
    Sorry forgot to say I’m in the U.K.,as promised some picture of my collection

    Kahlos,my 8 yr old Kahl strain albino bci
    Such a big softie he is six ft IMG_2102.JPG [​IMG][​IMG]
    Next is Jim my Kahl strain albino jungle bci
    He’s a big softie too and around 7ft and chunky ,the jungle gene has given a pretty cool stripe and dome colour has remained on his tail and cheeks
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Next is my 2 yr old sunglow female she keeps her colour as she has got both the Hypo gene and Kahl albino gene

    What stunning snakes Richy, absolutely love the coloring, especially Jim. What are the temperaments of the BCI in general?

    Thanks snapped
    Most are gentle
    Giants. All my albinos are just so chilled ,none of them
    Are viv defensive either.i have a couple that are but I
    Just give them a quick
    Stroke either with my hand or the hook and lift them straight out, like all snakes there can be some right snappy ones but I’ve been pretty lucky. My adult female who gave me a litter last year is a grump and been tagged by her a few times ,
    all love there food and would probably eat every day if you they could
    Jim is really nice,the jungle gene has kept his colour really well as most albinos loose there colour by the time there two,most albino boas have a bit of pink
    On them when born , the sunglow will keep a lot of her orange as the genes needed for a sunglow are the Hypo gene which is co dominant and the albino gene which is recessive so both parents must carry the gene,the jungle is also co dominant


    Here a picture of Jim with my 18yr old son as you can see he’s a big chunky snake [​IMG][​IMG] think he was eyeing the cat up in the picture for a spot of lunch [​IMG]

    Thanks Samantha, I try keep them apart just incase, it wouldn’t go down too well as a 7ft boa would definitely be able to eat to her that’s for sure
