I must admit that the behaviour of this guy really shocked me and led me to believe he really was not a snake lover but a snake keeper for financial gain. This is the same character driving around with a load of indigenous venomous snakes boasting how good the market was.

Back to the boa concerned. Yesterday i had to change the light fitting in her tank and in my stupity had originally fitted it where i almost have to be head and shoulders in the tank to get to it. She was very interested while i got ready and followed my movements until i took the plunge and ignored a possible bite and changed the entire light which took around 25 minutes of in and out her tank. She just kept touching my hands and arms as if craving the contact. No bites or aggression at all.

I know a bite will come some time but believe it will not be out of pure aggression.
