Darren Hamill Reptiles has been specializing in captive bred reptiles since the early 90s. While known for working with pythons and monitors, our specialty is boas.
Over the past 20 years, our focus has been on Central American Boas (Boa imperator) localities and Tree Boa (Corallus) species. The variation in color of the Central Imperator boas has been an amazing experience. We’ve been fascinated by the diverse sizes, colors, and patterns of the locality boas. One of our favorites was the nearly solid black type II anerythristic boa, which had a captivating iridescence unlike anything else on the market. Working with locality boas has been a truly beautiful endeavor.
The Corallus group, known as “Tree Boas,” is even more variable, particularly the Corallus subspecies. Amazons, for example, exhibit a wide range of colors from reds and oranges to brown and grey. Baby boas from Amazon (Corallus hortulanus) parents often display unique color and pattern combinations that differ significantly from their parents. As they age, their colors may darken or lighten. These distinctive boas are truly captivating and it’s hard not to fall in love with them!
Today, our collection consists of various forms of boas, including Central American and Nicaraguan (Boa imperator), as well as South Brazilian Bolivian Boas (Boa constrictor amarali), commonly known as “Silver-back Bolivian Boas.”
On the arboreal side, we’re working with Amazon Tree Boas (Corallus hortulanus) and Emerald Tree Boas (Corallus caninus).
