    Re: Argie

    I was off work today and guess who was just hanging out in her tub. I tried to resist picking her up but the temptation was just too much. I had to test the waters. I gave her a quick rub with the hook and swooped her up. She gave half a hiss but calmed down almost immediately. I walked around the house with her for a few minutes before putting her back. I'm sure that with a little more time, patience and food we're going to be just fine.

    Nice! She's calming down already! Nice work El-Ziggy, and more importantly, awesome Boa all around.

    I had to go to your profile to catch up on some of your threads.

    It sucks when cool posts like this get pushed off the front page.

    Great looking boa sir!

    She's doing great JMC. She's right at 200g and eating small mice but I think she'll be ready for rat weaners soon. Glad to see someone else keeping BO. They're very underrated and underrepresented in the hobby if you ask me. Your girl is a real gem. I'm looking forward to watching both our critters grow. Xena started off pretty hissy too but she grew out of it really fast. A few good meals goes a long way.

    Good to hear Ziggy! She was born early summer 2018 right? My girl isnít too far behind Xena then. I think she was eating small mice at Bobís place but he said sheíd be fine on the hoppers Iíve got until I make a feeder order.
    Havenít handled my gal yet aside from unboxing, but how long did Xena take to chill out? Iím planning to get bit a lot getting her used to handling but sheís so cute I donít think I could even be mad about it hahah

    You're right JM. Xena was born on June 16, 2018. I was feeding her 1-2 hoppers every 7-14 days until I got a new feeder order in. The small mice aren't much larger. It only took Xena about a month or two before she totally stopped with the hissing. Even with all the hissy fits she never tried to bite me defensively. The one time I did get tagged was when my 9 y/o son dropped the mouse from the tongs when feeding her. Instead of leaving the hopper on the enclosure floor for her to find I tried picking it up to offer again and that's when she got me.
