    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    Like Behira, Feliz hasn't grown much in the past 9 months or so. He's been eating small rats about every 2-3 weeks, but usually closer to 2 weeks, when things haven't been crazy with work on the house/basement/reptile area.

    He is a dwarf boa and 5 years old this September. Having said that, I am considering moving him to medium rats every 3 weeks versus small rats every 2 weeks. Thoughts? I still feel Behira (BI) has some decent growing to do and definitely want to move her up. Feliz I am more on the fence about.

    There isn't too much information on Venezuelan Dwarf BC. I was told his dad at 6 years old was about 4 1/2 feet and not to expect Feliz to be more than 5FT +/-. I am beginning to think the breeder was dead on. Feliz is a little over 4FT now and about 1,050G.

    Any thoughts?

    There is nothing wrong with a bigger prey item.
    Wild type feeding is all about variety and changes in prey size. Bigger and spread out is a decent option, then go smaller again. Keep the system guessing. As long as you are not offering something ridiculous in size, the boa will probably benefit from the change.

    You have been at it long enough to know your animals.

    Give it a shot and see how things pan out.

    Thanks Gio (and those who like the post and commented on Behira's). I will try Feliz on Medium Rats starting this week.

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    Feliz ate his first medium rat tonight.

    I had to postpone feeding a week because of Alpha, my dog who was very sick.

    I'll plan to feed him medium rats every 3 weeks from now. He will be on the same feeding schedule as Behira. Jeff (male BI) is still on small rats and will eat every 2 weeks, as do the 2 pythons and the 2 corn snakes.

    Some pics of Feliz with my mother. She came to visit and I had to clean some tanks, so she was on snake duty.

    Just can't get over his color...it is so striking loud yet still so very subtle and calm. I know that may sound weird.

    I agree,

    He's got great coloring and he's holding them with age.

    Thank you!

    He was a holdback for color so I am hoping he keeps the great looks as he ages.

    Feliz shed. He's looking dapper. Not great lighting, but he still pops. He seems to hold the colors and pattern well with age, but his iridescence only seems to get better. Hard to get that in pictures though.
