Paul’s boa



This was Paul’s first wild-caught Boa constrictor (that he caught himself).  It turned out to be a very aggressive male, unlike Eba, our temporary pet boa who is now healthy and free.  This boa bit Paul in the hand, leaving behind two teeth, one of which became slightly infected.  Soon, after the bite, the snake escaped its bucket before Paul was able to get a photograph with it.  A few days later, he found it in between the roof and the ceiling and finally got his photo.
