        What size tank do you have he/she in? Good looking snake.

          She's in a 35 gallon fish tank. I'm pretty sure I'll need to upgrade soon.

            Nice looking boa. Looks like she is growing fast.

            Normally that size tank is okay for the 1st year to year and a half. Once they reach 4 feet or so, a bigger space would be nice for them.

              She is growing fast. How big is she now?
              What are you feeding her and how often?

                She was born 5/28/02. I haven't measured her yet, but I think the tank is 36" in length. That would put her at just under 30"(in my best estimate). I'm feeding her one mouse every 7-8 days. I received her about 5 weeks ago. She must have been taken take of... East Bay Vivarium is where I purchased her. http://www.redtailboas.com/cgi-bin/y...num=1042214624

                  You should switch her to f/t rat pups. That is what I feed mine and he is right at 281/2 as of last night. I ordered 25 rat pups from www.cajunmice.com it was right around 45 or so. You can see pic of him on this page under MR. Skittles.

                    Nice looking snakie ya got there. ;D

                    That tank looks to be larger than just 35 gallons though.. lokks like most of the 55's we have here..BUT could just be the pics is all.
                    ANYWAYS...

                    I'm feeding her one mouse every 7-8 days
                    From the snake sizing in the pic.. and also that a snake like a bci can take rat from the start.. I'd suggest moving the snake onto rats at this time. Just go with either a rat pup or one that is like a week old. That should be fine for this snake to take in np. The snake will get more nutrtion from a rat than it will from a moue btw. Also keep with a 7 day schedule for now till the snake is older.
