If you don't regularly have other snake-comfortable people around, you might want to think hard about how big/strong you are willing to go.As a not small or weak female (I'm a metalworker, so excellent hand/arm strength), I would still want a spotter around any time I was handling any boa/python over about 4 to 6 feet long, just in case. They can be hissy/snappy as babies, but that's not exactly all that uncommon. And use long tongs to feed frozen/thawed with. As adults, they need the usual... an enclosure tailored to meet their needs in regards to thermoregulation etc. I figured I could handle getting a baby that grows up being a large Dumeril's, but winding up with a large BCC/BCI might be more than I bargained for.My Dumeril's is a very striking snake to look at, and she has been very docile thus far. I'm sure Red Tails make incredible pets too, but I was drawn to the Dumeril's due to their somewhat smaller potential size and their relatively unique color patterning. Be forewarned though, each of these animals is a 20+ year commitment and requires exceptional dedication and patience as well as the capability to show them the care necessary to raise one of them.I think burms would get too large for me to interact with on my own.

My adult Sinaloan Kingsnakes can actually be a little tricky to remove from my wrist with just my other hand any time they get nervous and decide to tighten down while I'm holding them, and kings don't have the kind of heft and muscle a boa of the same length packs.All that said, if I was offered a free Dumeril's, I'd go for it. Both boa constrictors and Dumeril's boa will be slow growers, too, so you'll have plenty of time to grow with them, and properly fed it will take 4+ years for a boa constrictor to get to a size larger than 6', if they're meant to get bigger than that.

They're ground dwellers, like most heavy bodied boids, so in terms of similarity of care to a ball, you're not gonna be too far off.I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to adequately care for a Dumerils if you're ok with the size they reach and willing to put in the usual time and effort with research etc. And I'm sure your dads' friend will help you pick out the right baby for you.
