Hi! My name is River! I am a BCI Boa.

Believe it or not, I was brought into the shelter as a stray and then transferred to rescue to help me find my new home!

Usually, babies my size are not used to being handled yet but I am actually very easy to pick up and work with.

Fun fact about me: I got my name because I came from Riverside and I will grow to be just like a long flowing river!

I'm a young snake and I love being held and checking out new things! I do like to come out to socialize and I need to be socialized so that I can be handled when I am fully grown.

I'm also very healthy and I am a great eater! As a young and active boa, I require my own habitat that is secure. Clearly, I have managed to get out on a few occasions so my habitat will require a lock. It will also need to be large enough to accommodate what I will be as an adult. Though I am considered on the small side now, I will get as big as 6 to 8 feet!

With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life of up to 30 years! My new family must have reptile experience and preferably large snake experience.
