    Re: Just put a deposit down on a BRB, progression thread!

    Beautiful snake you have. Have you seen any of the nippyness that is so often associated with BRB's?? Why is it that they have that reputation - what causes that to happen.

    Thank you! So the general nippyness can come from their feeding response. BRBs are always ready to eat, and babies when startled will immediately think food and strike. I noticed with her, I have 'tap trained' her. When I feed her, I use the tongs to tap on her cage. It wakes her up and she is immediately in food mode. When I open the cage without tapping she remains in her hide, with no signs of wanting food

    What a beautiful boa, is definitely my favorite now. Too bad they require 95% humidity when young. I don't think I am experienced enough to be consistent with that. Otherwise I would love to have one. How big does male and females get to be when adult? How's their temperament? Thanks

    Females average about 6-7 feet, males at 5-6. Babies can be a bit nippy but they mellow out with regular gentle handling Yeah I don't recommend them as beginner snakes. The best way to keep them while they are young is in large tupperware, which holds the humidity in well. Adult cages are often times custom built
    I took her outside for some fresh air today before it got too warm
