Thanks so much for the help! Yeah i heard that columbians where somewhat more doscile than others. But i didn't know that they didn't get as big. I guess that 7-8 feet is just the normal size for them, becuase there is a columbian boa at the local snake farm that is 10ft. It belongs to the owner, so i knew it was a columbian sence she told me that she adopted it from someone that thought it was a red tale, and when they found out that it was a columbian they decided to get ride of it, and that kindof pissed me off, becuase i don't understand how someone can be so picky about something so small.
