Not quite fish related...need help*Contest*

We moved a little away from fish today . Just put on hold a baby red tail boa constrictor to pick up on Friday 8O 8O. Yesterday the Fiancee says I can finally have one and today we go and pick one out.(She loves it too though).

Do need help on a good name for a male boa.....any suggestions?

We know this should be in New Aqcuisitions but "The Lounge" generates a ton of postings!!

Just playing the Devil's advocate here... I hope she knows how large those things get, and how demanding, and how much space it takes, right?

"Basil", after Alex's boa on "A Clockwork Orange". Most of the boas and other snakes I have that are named, have names from various world mythologies and folk-tales. My daughter's cornsnake is "Naga", after the cobra in Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, for instance.

Naming your boa "Squeeze", "Hugs", "Boaz", or "Monty" is like naming your dog "Fido", "Rex" or "Prince".

She definatley knows how big they get and how long they can live. We are aware that we are going to need a 90gal or so enclosure for the snake in the next 12-18months. Thank you though
