Umm, excuse me but is that just for feeding purposes? If not I would reccomend buying a wayyyy larger tank for it:) How large is its current tank?


Best regards,

For the record..

Boa is living in riparium ment for the Anaconda which is expected next month.

Btw: Newest addition is a Brazilian Rainbow Boa. female, 8 years old.
Hassnt left her pool yet.
Looks a bit like an Anaconda, by the way.

Pics of the rainbow, now! I love those snakes!

I'd get a male anaconda, much smaller and easily managed compared to the massive females. But if you're up for the challenge, go for it.

I started working out.

No, just joking.
Im single, no family, no friends, so I think it would be the beginning of
the end if I should choose a female anaconda. :D

I have already lame arms when handled my three snakes now, and the biggest
is the Rainbowboa, which is a female, 6'.

Would be more sain to keep a male anaconda, like you said.
But....

And the Rainbow issnt in good health yet.

But here she is:

An unheated shed, a dry terrarium, on the floor, results in this.

So I gave her a bath:

And some food:

And after treatmend against parasites, shes a little timid:

She's a laid back lady, and I like her a lot.
I think after some sheddings, she'll be gorgeous.

A propos, I'll open a new thread titled: Ollies snakes.

At 53 inches, a boa can easily eat large rats without issue. Snakes are designed for larger meals.
Suriname boa constrictors are much more prone to regurgitation than boa imperator. They should not be fed prey items that are any larger than the thickest part of their body. Nor should they be fed as often as most people feed. Their organs like most constrictors swell during digestion and take sometimes two weeks or more to return back to normal. When my Suriname was 54 in she was eating medium rats and while small is fine and she could eat medium, a 54-in BC should not be eating a large. My 63 in BC just got switched to large and I switched back because I wasn't comfortable with the size. A boa imperator you have more wiggle room but with Suriname and Guyana and other BC you do not want to feed anything bigger than the thickest part of their body.
