:Rob summed it up very well…I’ll just re-state the part about curiosity and (apparent) intelligence.
My indigos usually peek their heads out of their hide areas upon my entrance to the room…even when they have no desire to eat. This seems to be sheer curiosity. They watch me as I work in the snake room.

They seem remarkably aware of their surroundings and everything going on around them. No comparison to, for example, a tree boa or python that sits on a tree limb for days on end without moving.

There’s something really remarkable about very large colubrids in general too…it can’t be understood without holding a large specimen. Add to this the gentle nature, unequalled beauty, and the fact that they are becoming so rare…and you have your reasons why we treasure them so much.
