    Brazilian rainbow boa - what to pair with a hypo?

    I am not a breeder but I am curious what a cool pairing with a hypo BRB would be? What kind of fun things could a person make? I know that morphs are still pretty new when it comes to BRBs, but I think that just makes all the possibilities so exciting! Some things that I think might be fun would be a Hypo x zebra stripe... I wonder what that would look like!

    It seems to me that the BRB is the up and coming thing with morphs. You could be on the cutting edge if you got into breeding them.

    I've always considered getting one, but the high maintenance scares me away.

    I have one. She is not what I would call high maintenance at all. Just high humidity. Fairly easy going for a baby. She is 4 months old now and have had her from 3 weeks old. Doing great in a tub till she out grows it.

    As I understand it, that high humidity leads to more frequent total enclosure cleanings, meaning weekly.

    That's not much of an issue if you can get away with tubs, but I need to use PVC enclosures. It'd be a total pain cleaning an entire T8 weekly!

    I have been doing once every 2 weeks with no issues. She will be moving to a T8 soon as she is large enough. Will post experience once she is upgraded in 6 to 12 months depending on her growth.
