  • Look what I got

    Hey guys just got back from the Whiteplains NY reptile show. I picked up this boa from a guy who only had her for a week. She only cost me $75 because of a scar on her tail from live feeding. The guy I got her from rescues reptiles so I'm assuming she is a rescue. She has never eaten f/t until today, she took a f/t rat no problem. She has a slight case of RI which I'm hoping will go away within a week but if not then off to the vet she goes. She has the best temperment you could ask for and she is dark, with her tail being almost completley black. So I'm like her rescuer ;D ;D. Anways here she is :

            tat- i know im just giving her a few days to get established, i know shes stressed so im just gonna watch if it clears up within a week then thats good, but if it gets any worse during that week im going to bring her to the vet, I would never just leave a snake here hoping that shes gonna get better when she isnt

                  thanks cuda, i wont let thr ri get any worse, I'm just seeing if the ri will clear up in a week because it might just be because of the stress, but if it gets any worse i will bring her to the vet right away. How often should i feed her? 2 small rats a week until shes up to par?

                        definatley steve, Chance it is. I 've been calling her that all day ;D. The wierd thing is though is that when most snakes have RI they are lethargic, and Chance is all over her cage exploring, she resists movements when she doesn't want to be moved, which is a good sign, and eats. Well I'll be on the chat room tonight so I'll talk to you guys there.

                          Hey Zack,

                          I am sure you are already doing it. But just in case, drop the humidity to like 20-30% and up the heat close to.. 84 on the cool side, 91 on the hot side. Just watch she doesn't get too plugged up with mucus. The last think you want to have her go through is a lung flush..

                          Keep us posted on how she does..

                          The name fits her well..)

                          Steve
