The Blood Boas are a simple recessive
genetic mutation that actually ADDS red. This is the only
traceable genetic mutation that we know of that has been
proven to add a color trait, instead of taking it away.
These boas originate from a small island off El Salvador,
and like most insular boa’s, they stay small. Our
adults are approximately 5 ½ - 6 feet. While the
Blood Boa’s tend to “muddy up” with age,
we think that their true value lies in the possibilities
that exist when they are bred into Albinos and Hypos. Imagine
the red that the Blood will add to any Albino project, and
imagine the Blood Boa without any black pigmentation! A
Bloody Sunglow will likely be one of the most breathtaking
