    Thanks! I wish I'd done a bit more research into the different localities before I went for the Nic, because there's so many other appealing ones, Caye Caulker being one of them! I literally found out about them a few days ago. Not that I know much yet but I already like dwarfs so much


    I just fed Remby again, I remembered to use a hairdryer this time and he struck! But he let go of the mouse after he dragged it into his hide, where I hope he'll have eaten it by now... I'm such a paranoid new snake parent haha

    Really glad he's eating for you, boas don't tend to be that fussy when it comes to eating.
    I don't think you will regret choosing a nic
    They really are great boas

    Keep us posted !!

    The trick for the hairdryer trick is to keep repeating the process, reheat with hairdryer and offer INSTANTLY if they strike or even just tongue lick ... reheat and offer instantly... repeat until it's grabbed and eaten ..

    Thanks for the tip! During the first two feedings, he'd dropped the mouse as if he wasn't going to eat it but pretty much inside his hide, so I'd left it there and hoped for the best. So far it's worked out but I'll keep it in mind in case it doesn't!

    If they're in their hide ... all the better ! For example Royals generally prefer to strike from within their hide and eat it in there as well ... some people lift the hides out before feeding which is the WORST thing to do

    I made that mistake the very first time, so I was really lucky he still ate for me I thought I knew what I was doing, but reading about it and actually doing it are entirely different matters, clearly. I definitely won't be doing that again! There's so many little details of snake keeping I still need to learn.

    Another example of my newbie-ness: I know boas tend to not poop often but I'm still anxiously awaiting Remby's first bowel movement. At the same time I'm worrying if he peed or passed urates and I missed it in the substrate... gah

    Your doing great my friend!!! These dwarf boa's are great snakes. I love my 2 girls to pieces. When it comes to feeding they are ready to pounce and never skip a meal. My one girl always knows it's feeding day because she has her head sticking out of her hide half way waiting. She reminds me of a dog waiting for his bone...

    I finally managed to get a decent picture! This guy really won't hold still for long I don't get the feeling he's tense or afraid but he always seems to want to go places!



    bonus:



    I did NOT realize boa constrictors are so cute.
