Critters: boa



We saw this beautiful boa in Prague 12.7.2014.
I got to scratch him behind his ears 
and take a few photos of him.

  13. A woman had a boa on the playground of our grandson's school two different days we picked him up. It was very "friendly" too. I wouldn't have thought that of a snake. He was also beautiful, as is this one. Great photos!

    1. Thank you Michelle! I've petted snakes before as well. They're not cold and slimy like people sometimes believe.

  19. He is so beautiful!
    My first thought at seeing his head is how funny people with a phobia will generally overcome it when they REALLY want to a take a picture of what they fear most!!
    I don't mean you of course, but whether it is snakes or spiders, I observe people coming 'round their basic fears in blogs!!
    A good thing! :)
    Enjoy the coming week!
