  • Dumeril Boas

    I plan on getting a Captive bred Baby female Dumeril in December/January. I have most of the information on them that I need.

    I just want to be sure I have as much information on them as I can get. During my search on the internet I kept finding different info on their size and the enclosure size.

    I plan to get a 40 gallon critter cage for an enclosure in October.

    I have read that their adult average 4-6 feet with a max length of 7 feet but I have also read that their adult length is 3-6 feet. I am not sure which is true.

    So if anyone has any experience with them, I would appriciate any information on their size and enclosure size requirements.

    What I plan on doing right now is sticking with the 40 gallon critter and if the boa outgrows it I will get the boa a bigger enclosure.

          Hello Viper,

          I have had and bred Dum's once.. They are an interesting snake to work with. The adult female I had was just barley 6 foot. They are famous for being very picky eaters and tend to be real sensitive to any temp and humidity change. Make sure if your going to get into Dum's that your setup can be controlled 100%..

          Any info I can help with, just ask. Its been a few years but I still remember most things about my experience..

          Good luck
          Steve

                  The measurements of a 40 gallon critter are:

                  3 feet Long x 18 inches Wide x 18 inches High

                    Hi Viper,

                    I wouldn't put a snake much bigger then 4 - 4.5 in long.. One of the problems with that size is the depth.. But until the snake gets real thick you could get away with using that tank for a 4-4.5 long snake..

                    Hope that helps
                    Steve

                        Thanks Sclark,

                        What I will do is go ahead with getting the 40 gallon critter, and save up some cash for later on so if I need to get a bigger enclosure I will already have the cash for it.

                            Thanks bigmitch, I got the IM thanks.

                            I know I have room for another 40 gallon critter but I am not sure I have room for anything bigger. I will do some measuring and go from there. I will let you all know what I decide to do probably tommorrow or Friday.

                            Thanks for the help

                              Small update.....

                              I don't have room for anything bigger than a 40 gallon Critter cage. I am looking into other Boas & Pythons that I can house in a 40 gallon critter cage.

                              Some of the choices I am considering are a Ball Python, or a Spotted Python.

                              I am not sure what Boas stay small enough to be housed in a 40 gallon critter.
