      Default The Ultimate Care Guide Comments - Open Thread!

      Since the Download thread will stay in a closed state and just be used for downloading, I wanted a thread that would be open for comments on the new Ultimate Care Guide.

      Please posts comments here.

      Well, all I can say is that this is way beyond what I expected. Jeff's addition on breeding is amazing. I have the VPI DVD with Boa Constrictor Manual and this guide blows those away. The detail is great! Clay also updated his sections and also did a great job.

      I can't believe this thing is FREE!!!

      Again, Thank you both. You guys rock!

      I read the new breeding section last night, and was blown away by the amount of detail. I can't imagine the countless hours of research that went into this amazing piece of work. I can't thank yall enough for being able to make this free. Just another reason why RTB's is the best forum on the net.

      I wanted to brush up on a bit of breeding information the other night and after about 30 minutes of unsuccessful searching for an old thread I remembered from 2010 I finally decided to go back to basics and hit up The Ultimate Care Guide. I found what I was looking for in about 20 seconds.

      That would make sense, but after reading the guide, my guess is most people still have questions, myself included! So making an account is something you would have eventually done anyways!

      Anyways, Welcome!

      I have a question regarding the guide and its feeding outlines...

      I have a 9 month old BCI that is 3'9. What I'm trying to figure out is do I go by her age or size to figure out how often I should feed her? Most snakes I've kept I've fed every week until they are a year old (at which point I bump them up to every 10-14 days), which is what the guide recommends. However, for her size and according to the guide she should be feed every two weeks.

      So which do I go by? I've been feeding her one size appropriate rat (which would be a medium rat) every week so far, and she's doing well. She's not over weight, and she acts and seems healthy. Should I stick with once a week until she's a year old, or bump her back now?

      Was this a planned breeding or did you buy/adopt/rescue a gravid boa?
