Approximate cost before Dumeril’s boa purchase: $2500 USD

Keep in mind that everything should be purchased and set up BEFORE you get the snake. This will save you a lot of stress, and does your new pet a big favor, too.

I also recommend locating an experienced reptile veterinarian in your area It’s always better to do a little bit of research when nothing’s wrong than to find yourself in a panic when your pet gets sick. Start your search with the ReptiFiles Reptile Vet Directory.
