  • Any pointers on caring for new born boas

    I'm new to breeding boas and my Argentine may be gravid also breeding redtails first time. I know the basics of breeding but when the babies are born thats where I'm lost. Whats the first thing I should do when I see babies? clean them? also should I let them fight their way out of the sack them selfs? Shed first then feed them? If someone can give me some pointers I would appreciate it I'm not expecting untill late may-june I just want to be prepared. Any help is well appreciated.

    Read the ultimate care guide on this site. That is really something you should know before attempting to breed boas.

      You pretty much leave them alone until they all emerge from their sacks and start to move around

      What gets tricky is when there are yolks attached, babies with large yolk bellies and/or
      semi premie babies

      This all makes for more complications that have to be addressed
      in similar but somewhat different fashion usually

      So for the most part once they're moving remove them and place them in tub at about 87*-88*

      I like to put them all together in one tub until after their first shed

      They all like to hang out together and it some how helps stimulate their
      system plus helps them with their first shed being all together like that

      I always provide a small water dish for humidity and fresh drinking water

      I've never observed a baby Boa drink water before their first shed but
      that doesn't mean they don't
