    SOme rainbow boa's can be extremly nippy as young snakes.
    They require more humidty than any of the boa's and will not survive unless certian requirements are met.
    Don;'t know much about west hogs.

      Doug is right. There is more that has to be monitored carefully with Rainbows. I've been looking into getting one here soon, but am making sure I know everything before I go through with it. Two links I found with information are and

      However, I still have one question that maybe someone could answer. Is it a good idea to even house my redtail with a rainbow? Or would it be much safer and less stress free to just have two separate cages?

        The basic rule of thumb is no two snake should be housed together... expecily two of different kinds.... So yes get another cage....

          That's what I thought. ;D

          I'm gonna have to concentrate on getting the humidty right with my current boa now before I even take on one that is more picky about it. But that'll be another thread all together.
