    I've heard a couple say that BCC's tend to be more finicky eaters and have a tendency to regurge. I owned a Guyanan for a number of years and have never had a problem with her eating...

        BCCs tend to be much more defensive as youngsters, so can be very nippy. Also, they don't hit their growth spurts till the second year, as opposed to the BCI which will put on a lot of length in the first year, then bulk up. BCC end up getting bigger over all though.

        Husbandry wise, BCC's like it a couple degrees warmer than BCI, and a touch more humid.

          Surnames are really nice boas. I'm the owner of a 1.2 amazon basin surinames. I agree with monkeywrench133 on this. These are not fast growers.

            Re: bcc

            is it possible to house both together or am i looking for trouble. if both are the same size. i suppose there is always a stress factor. i will probably house seperate. i had 2 ball pythons together and they did well. i can afford seperate housing i was just under the impression that snakes like company. which i know is probably not true. lol. i suppose i will always have more questions than answers.....thanks

              Yeah, you've got to remember, boas are not naturally communal animals. So housing them together will cause stress. They do not need company, in fact, they see it as competition. These are Alpha Predators in their natural environment, and as such, are by nature solitary creatures.

                  You could get a workshop from an expert vet and learn more about it that way. Here are some expert vets:
