    not much to report other than that his third feeding was successful, and that he seems quite curious and active outside the enclosure!




    I'm really enjoying him my only concern now is that I've yet to see any urates/urine or poop from him still, it feels weird to be hotly anticipating snake poo haha

    Heís looking great, and I really dig the artist names for him and your user name. Caravaggio is one of my all time favorite painters.
    On the snake bathroom usage topic... what substrate do you have him on? Heís so small that his poops and urates could easily be hidden if you are using anything remotely natural looking as bedding.

    Thank you!! Lovely to meet a fellow art enthusiast I'm just mostly very uncreative with naming, so I picked an easy theme and stuck with it, haha (my also-recently acquired cat is Caspar after Caspar David Friedrich).

    You're right, I'm currently using cypress mulch, and I did wonder how I'm supposed to find poop and such in there. I've been trying my best to look for any bathroom activity but I could easily have missed something. So would you recommend switching to paper towel or newspaper until he puts on more size?

    Also, does poop/pee smell very much at this size? I thought I'd be able to tell if there was any bathroom activity by smell but I'm not sure about that any more either.

    I might have found a poop a few days after I got him (3 weeks ago) - there was a little brown thing that I thought smelled funny so I took it out but honestly I'm not sure.

    Very handsome critter. Great first snake too. Boas have been making a very positive impression on me lately.

    Thank you I've been a bit shy about posting outside this thread but I've been admiring your incoming boa from afar, congrats on that!

    I'm surprised smaller boas aren't recommended more often as beginner snakes, I know it's been only a few weeks, but so far Remby's been a breeze, at least feeding and handling-wise.

    It probably wonít smell too much with cypress mulch. Iíve got my 3 month old bcc on plain white paper for quarantine purposes right now and it stinks a little when he goes #2. Itís a remarkably tiny poop though hah! Almost wouldnít notice if it didnít leave a stain on the paper. Iíve gotten used to cleaning up retic poop which I can sometimes smell before I even walk into the snake room

    Thanks for your input! I think I'll give paper towel a try when I do his monthly clean, which is coming up soon.

    Gosh, retics seem so cool but I don't know how you keepers deal with their messes I've heard so much of, I'm already getting intimidated by full-grown (dwarf) boa poops, at least I have a ways to go until then! Honestly, props to you

    He did it, he took an adorable little dump and passed some urates as well! I'm so relieved

    A couple random pics - until I get a better camera I think I'll give up on getting shots outside the enclosure, this guy is such a wiggly little noodle.

    Rembrandt - Nicaraguan Boa (first snake!)

    Looking great,
    he will calm down .you only had him a short while and he will get to trust you, just sit and let him go from hand to hand thatís what Iím doing with my two new little worms, the females not too bad. She will sit and stare at at mate and I can see her trying to work me out But the male just wants to go, but Iíve only had them a fortnight so Iím pleased so far, the male only struck once at me last week but thatís it
    Early days
