Active when out and wants to explore everything around her. Her name is Ruby now. Love the pink blushing on her face.
    Good on the judge to do the right thing. She looks like a real sweetheart!

    That is incredible! Most jurisdictions barely recognize reptiles as pets, never mind covering them under cruelty and neglect laws.

    It means that she has been here long enough without a name that my adopted daughter was getting upset with me. Now Ruby is technically hers.

    Glad they pressed some charges, nice to see that for once.

    woah, weekly large and even bi-weekly large, that's a LOT of food for a boa. I know you're tying to get some weight back on her but please watch it (or your adopted daughter since she is taking her).

    The large rat is slightly smaller than her head. I started her on smalls and then went to mediums but Vet said she is ready for large. Do you think should be once a month at this point for a large?

    Once my boas start eating large rats they go onto a 4-week schedule.

    She is doing well eating 1 large rat every 2 weeks but is slamming them when offered. Will slowly push her out to 3 weeks after a couple more feedings.

    Great to see that whether or not the judge liked or hated reptiles, he recognized the wrongdoing of the previous owner and punished him for it. I'm not sure every judge would do that

    Doing well. Almost up to proper weight. Eating small meals weekly. I tried to feed something larger and she refused to eat it. Poor girl is scared of a large rat.
