Well I have had Neo my suriname for a little over a week. He went to the vet and received a clean bill of health other than a few mite, treated him witha shot then i cleaned his tank and treated the rest of the house "JIC" he is doing alot better mite wise saw non left alive on him and gave him a bath tonight. after his bath he was crawling all over me he had his head up near my ear and was flicking me, I could here him breathe though. He is my first large snake so what I am wondering is, is it common to hear a ladult Boa breathe while his had is less that a inch from your ear or should I take him back to get looked at for a RI he shows no other signs of any problem.
