Who's Missing Their 6 Foot Boa Constrictor?
Read that in the paper yesterday. Sort of a hard item to misplace, I'd think. 😉
I used to have a boa - if you don't secure the top of the tank they can pop right out and slither away!
ah, what the heck... send it to STX and give the mongoose something to play with for Thanksgiving dinner.
The original owner showed up to claim it. Lost him 15 years ago! Was about a foot long when he lost him! This I was told today by the guy from the Humane Society that wrangled him.
So that thing has been roaming around for 15 years? Good thing it didn't get loose with a mate or there would be serious problems. 🙁
I wonder how anyone knows it's the same snake. Perhaps the original snake found a mate , has been breeding for fifteen years, and the one captured is just one of many.
I'm trying desperately to laugh about this snake thing, and I know that it is a rarity, but I shudder to think of meeting such a thing while walking down in the bush!
I'd think a 15' snake that managed to find a mate would have had lots of babies slithering around. Wouldn't somebody have sighted one before now? I guess it's one way to keep the rat population down, as well as chickens, toy poodles, cats, etc. 🙁
i used to manage a pet store and we had a 17ft python. she was really sweet, most would not be. but a 6-9ft boa especially a 6ft one would not be something i would worry about. now i may be worried about my dog, but not me. constrictors cannot do much damage to a human unless they are extremely large. and one that was once a pet would have been of a domestic breed.
I would trade an island full of boas instead of centipedes any day.
Well, there go property prices in Peterborg! 😉
Well, I can't seem to find the article on line, but the Daily News this morning (12/12/07) had an article on a SECOND boa found. This one on the south side, near Green Cay. I wonder if those babies would like some of the #!&% roosters that are disturbing my early morning sleep.
Hey, get your skillet hot & have a good, old-fashioned chicken fry. 🙂
Pulled in our driveway yesterday and found 3 chickens and a rooster!
Trade, you ever try to catch one? Gook Luck! lol! 🙂
dougtamjj, I agree with you! Don't like those Centipedes! I got bit by a baby a few years back. Was sleeping and got abruptly woken up! He was sleepin' with me and didn't like my hand under his pillow! Called the Hospital, they told me if I start to have trouble breathing, come in! Didn't sleep the rest of the night, but had no reaction. Thank goodness he was only a little guy! 🙂
