Sara Maloff holds one-year old Scarlet, a red tail boa constrictor. The exotic pet is now six feet long, but is expected to reach 10 feet by maturity. The snake is considered very docile in nature and has a life expectancy of 25 to 30 years. Maloff is a reptile rescuer and also has a spirited four-year old bearded dragon named Dex (inset) in her care. After being kept in a shoe box and only fed potato scraps, the Pogona (genus for the reptile) is now a mascot for Maloff’s place of employment.
