My Baby Boa


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

was wondering if anyone on here has snakes or know someone who has?

I have a baby Boa who is around 3 weeks old.

Ive had her since the day she was born.

Anyhoo... I was advised when i got her not to feed her untill she has her first shed. ( I have other snakes so kinda know what im doing however none of the others were live births, they hatched.)

Anyway, she shed when she was 10 days old (24th August) and she hasnt eaten at all.

I know boa's are live births so i knwo they live off the egg for the first little while, however, she dosent even seem interested in food.

Ive tried not handling her, dimming the lights, lowering the heat and humidity, feeding her at night ect ect but she dont seem to want to eat.

Can anyone offer any advice please??

Thanks hun

I'll have a look at that.


at that age, she will only feed once a week or so.

Have you tried her on pinkies, pref fresh kill rather than frozen/thawed?

Yeah, ive tried her on pinkies fresh killed and frozen. Also tried her on fuzzies fresh and frozen.

Im only worried coz she hasnt eaten at all since she was born.
