    JB.. yes, somewhat. I'd say 35-40% of my BCC females have gone through a fatter period, whereas 75-80% of my BCI females go through that stage. The BCC tend to be older at that point.. say 24-36 months (but mind you, mine are the same size as a 1-2 year old BCI at that time). The BCC that stay lean as juveniles develop well later on in life. The BCI that stay lean as juveniles tend to take more work (exercise and more food) to grow normally and develop good muscle tone down the road.

    ALL of my Amarali would get fat and stay fat if I were to allow it, lol. But at the same time, they are all incredibly muscular from birth. I keep them as lean as possible at any age, and they never have a problem growing like weeds or developing tons of muscle as adults.

    Male BCI and BCC.. they just don't go through that fatter stage around here. It's happened maybe once or twice, and the fat didn't stay as long as it does on a female.

    An ad triggered my memory and reminded me that I wanted to get some other folks perspective on this. I've asked this question before on other forums and I figured it was time to see what a different group of people thought.

    This wasn't started as a way to call anyone out, in fact in the original post I stated:

    I don't know how much more blatant I could have been in my attempts to AVOID calling someone out. I didn't even hint at a specific person by referencing their stock, or anything known about them. And I certainly didn't then insinuate anything false about them or their animals either.

    Not sure where this thread rubbed folks the wrong way. I thought we were just talking about big fat boas! Afterall, that was the original purpose of the thread.

    Larry and Nicole, thanks for the clarification!

    Nicole, do you have any plans for that big Guyana female (I can't remember her damn name to save my life right now)? Any chance that male you picked up from Mike is going to get his chance with her? If so, toss my name on the list. In the first slot, if you don't mind. No, no, no. Not THAT first slot, the first slot before YOU!

    Cold rolled steel....this LTC girl is right at 8' and IMO perfect body weight for a Bcc.

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking.

    Default Use of the word "fat" to describe a boa

    If it isn't productive getting somewhere or in good fun for both people don't put it in type. We don't need it to go there...

    Maybe they want to do a note to self "fat boas" might be a bad idea for advertising.. unless it's PH fat...LOL....

    Thanks, Ed
    Just so we are certain this was not meant as a bait
    I'm talking about my collection of "Colombian type Boas" sorry but you know what I mean
    that's why I apologized immediately

    I want to make sure I clear the air

    For me the water is over the Dam and under the bridge . . . . . "By Gones"

    I think this thread can be a very good perspective on how different people
    approach feeding or what is considered a healthy appearing Boa

    Also if in the long run that healthy appearance actually is better

    I'm interested in the whole subject

    When I first seen this it sounded great. Remembering back I would have gave anything to see more discusions and pictures. Matter of fact , thats why this site became my 2nd home, was able to get lots of questions like this answerd, even though most of the other folks here (at that time) were well versed in husbandry. Now days it still seems like a good idea since snakes may vary. Does color change anyones perspective of size?

    Figure if I were a snake I would want to be a black mamba, or indigo since dark colors are slimming
