Shirley - Brazilian
red-tailed Boa Constrictor seen on a number of television
Shirley (a non-poisonous snake) weighed 35 pounds and measured
six-feet, 4 inches long. She was owned and trained by Tim
Culbertson who purchased the snake (then 20 inches long) from a
pet shop for $100.00.
Shirley reportedly had mouth rot when she was bought. This was
cured by using iodine and gauze bandages.
Shirley has appeared in episodes of such shows as
CHIPS/NBC/1977-83,; and the movies Logan's Run (1976) and
Foul Play (1978).
