    Here's some pics of the enclosure.

    On the left side I have a 24 watt uth with a temp probe in the substrate set to 85 degrees.

    On the right side, I have day and night lights on a 12 hour timer. Day temp is 80 degrees, night temp is 75 degrees.

    RH is 50 percent.

    She has been pretty active the last two nights, I think she is hungry. I want to try a fresh kill rat tomorrow, one week since she last ate.


    We f that's successful, I'll try frozen thawed rats next.

    She seems pretty happy, mostly she stays in her hides, but the last two nights, she was definitely more active

    Oh man, she is beautiful. I need to find my boy a girlfriend and seeing these threads revive my hunt for one

    Thanks for taking good care of this sweet baby. Regardless of their intelligence level, I believe she will recognize the better husbandry, and feel much better in your care.
    Too Many...

    That's what my wife says

    She ate a fresh kill today. She struck the medium rat after about three seconds of dancing it in front of her.

    She constricted the prey for a few minutes, then she ate it no problem. She cruised her tank looking for another one, then she got in her water bowl for a while.

    She's back in her warm hide now. Next week I'll try to give her a frozen thawed rat

    She seems to have a great feed response. I'm really happy the proper temp and humidity control along with a good day and night cycle seem to be working

    Just an update. Penny is doing amazingly well. She just ate a f/t rat. She hit from burrowed inside her hot hide. It was a great strike, wood chips flew everywhere, and she quickly ate the prey.


    It's hard to believe that a month ago she wouldn't eat, and looked very unhappy. Now she's looking great. Now I'm only worried about over feeding her

    I wish more people would wait until they're settled under their hides before offering at the entrance.

    It works amazingly well with Royals especially when the food is WARM

    Just an update, Penny is doing well. She hasn't skipped a meal, and h r sheds are perfect now


    I got more info on her background, she was abandoned by her previous owner, his roommates didn't know what to do with h r, so they put her up for adoption on social media.

    My son in law, who does reptile rescues got her and her entire setup for free.

    He knew I had large snake experience, my last snake was a burm, and he knew I was looking for a Boa, so he brought her over to my house.

    She was in a 75 gallon tank with no heat sources, hadn't eaten for months, and had a stuck she'd.


    Now she's eating regularly and giving perfect sheds. She lost her flinch when I pick her up, and seems to like to explore a bit now. She seems very happy
