Acquired: Pet store
Posted Sep 25, 2013
The kids really wanted us to buy them a snake. My first reaction was to say no. I began to look up different snakes, warming up to the idea. I came across the Colombian boa. The snake is gorgeous with rainbow of colors. They were also known to be of gentle temperament.
I purchased Curly at a specialty pet store. He was a healthy male snake. He loved to be held. He was such a sweet creature. I loved to watch him. He was interesting. Feeding him was so interesting, like watching a National Geographical Channel program. We fed him live mice. He would chase the mice then corner it. It sounds severe, but watching it didn't seem so bad.
He loved to be held and pet. He developed a skin disease, and past away. not a day goes by I don't miss going to his cage to pet him before I start my busy day.
