We began collecting Kenyan sand boas initially as a way to conquer our irrational fear of snakes. In the process we discovered that the whole family enjoyed their low maintenance care, the ease of handling and their very small size. It has exploded from there! We like this particular breed of snakes because we have a younger family and they are very docile which allows the kids to freely play with them without supervision. These Kenyan/East African Sand Boas are the very smallest and slowest breed of snake available. They are the top new species to be collected by reptile enthusiasts due to their incredible attributes, colors and their high number of genetic mutations which has led to new morphs being introduced every year. Simply put, they are THE PERFECT PET FOR YOU!
