|This is Nigel and I chillin'.
As you can see Nigel also likes the NY YankeesGo Yankees!!
This month's feature is centered on my buddy
Nigel. He is a 2 year old Red Tailed Boa Constrictor. I will be
showing some interesting pics of Nigel eating a mouse. So sit
back and enjoy the show.
The name "Red-Tail Boa" has commonly
been used by pet stores and snake aficionados to detract the public's
attention from the fact that their proper name is boa constrictor.
Many people who do not know much about snakes are fearful of all
"constrictors," especially large constrictors; Red-Tail
Boa sounds much less threatening. In fact, not all boa constrictors
are red-tailed. While many boas on the market are true red-tailed
Boa constrictors imported from Brazil, with a few coming
from very limited areas in Columbia, the Amazon, Guyana, and Surinam,
most are actually B. c. imperator from Columbia, with a few coming
in from Mexico, Hogg Island and countries throughout Central America.
