Everything is great. He is settled in and doing fine,  Thanks, again, Paul

Everybody showed up great! Sorry I didn't write sooner, been really busy. Very beautiful little snakes!  Thanks again  Marty



My family and I would like to sincerely thank you for the newest additions (2 beautiful Redtail Boas) to our family. Every aspect of your operation is very professional and commendable, which include the detailed snake pictures to choose from, the easy online ordering process, the safe and humane packaging, the dependable delivery, and the continued caring customer support long after the transaction. Your knowledge and resourcefulness are paramount and are indicative of a successful and passionate business owner who really cares about their clients, as well as the animals you assist with bringing into this world.

Keep up the first class business operations and caring support to herpetologist community!



Dear Mr. Lynn Kubic and any other staff at 'Boas and Balls',

Thank you for the successful transaction that completed today. The snake's temperament, in my opinion, is even better than what you described. She is very curious, docile, seems to not mind being handled, and is not head shy in the slightest. My other friends that own snakes told me that it is very obvious that you handle your snakes often. I also appreciate you sending a copy of the records of the snake without me asking. Judging by the different names, different handwriting, different ink, detail, etc on the record, it is very obvious that you are a man of your word. Health wise the animal is just as healthy as in the picture and as you promised. No health abnormalities, no mites, well fed, stool sample ok- exactly as you promised. I am very pleased with this transaction, and I sincerely hope that in the future when I'm looking to put something in my second cage, that you have what I'm looking for. You will definitely be the first place I look. Thanks again!

I just wanted to thank you for an amazing snake! (me and my girlfriend purchased
it on Friday)  It seems to have adapted to its new home very well.  I fed it
today and it ate with no problem.

Thanks again,


Dear Lynn,
Thanks so much for sending me such a beautiful Red Tailed Boa. She is healthy as can be, clear eyes, alert, and nice gums. She was a little timid at first but she certainly has come around, I would have never thought you could ship a Boa from Colorado to Fla. in this weather. She will hopefully become larger and you know how they grow, I have always made sure they eat as much as they like. It Does keep the chances of being bitten down to a minimum. As you know they don't always see to well. I have named here such an appropriate name How's "Girlfriend" ?
Thanks so much again,
Bill Mouro

I just wanted to let you know that she arrived without any issues. She's a gorgeous animal, and I'm extremely pleased with her. She seems to be settling in well, and I'm looking forward to being able to breed her. Once again, thank you for the beautiful animal and the great service, I couldn't be more pleased. I hope I can purchase something else from you soon, I'm hoping to pick up a few more snakes soon.


Hi Lynn,

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that Ella appears to be
doing well in her new home. She's hanging out in her hide most of the
time, but we catch her peeking out once in a while to explore.

We fed her for the first time last night using some chopsticks (I still
don't have any tongs or hemostats--a trip to ProExotics this Saturday
should remedy that). She went for that smelly furball in seconds!

We're trying to be good keepers and letting her alone a bit to get used to
her new home. We'll let her digest that mouse to avoid any "undesirable

Visiting your home was such a treat. We were thrilled to see so many of
the beautiful animals you keep and breed. Seeing so many ball python
morphs and baby snakes for the first time is an experience we will not
soon forget.

Thanks for sharing so much of your time and knowledge with us. You really
helped foster our continuing appreciation and respect for these animals
and the people who love them.

If you could use any sort of volunteer help sometime, please consider me
because I'd love to participate as my schedule & skills allow.

Good luck with those moody tree boas,
Jason, Kim, Griffon, and Raven



I purchase a female #F1 Hog Island from you on Monday. It arrived safely and was packaged great. No problems at all. I just want to say thanks for the wonderful pet, and most importantly for taking the extra time to answer all of my questions before I committed to the purchase. That in and of itself was the single most important part. It not only showed that you care but that you also want the best for the animals once they leave your facility. In this day and age we live in, there are many items, including this, that can be purchased from dozens of sites for about the same price etc, but in then end it all comes down to customer service. You were the third place that I contacted regarding this species of snake, and the only one that seemed like they wanted to take the time to make me feel like I was informed on the things I still had some questions about. If I can ever talk my wife into letting me have another one (its only a matter of time J  ) I will be sure to look you up first. Thanks.

My Daughter and I bought 2 baby ball pythons from you at the spring reptile expo and just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with both snakes. They are so friendly and let us hold them. I was a bit worried about them feeding OK, and we have had no problems what so ever. I was not sure about buying at a reptile show as I have read all kinds of bad things about it but I felt it showed how much your wife loves these animals and was so glad to find out that with you both its not a problem buying from you.

Again thank you we love our little new part of our family

Just an update on the albino we got from you. He has been doing well, but had refused food until tonight. Within seconds of introducing the mouse to him, it was dinner. He is very active and has acclimated to handling daily. Thank you for a sweet animal with a great disposition.
