    I wouldn't worry about it. My Hypo female is almost 4 years old and is small. Her breeder is well known for slow growing his boas. I did step up her feeding schedule a bit and she grew faster but she is very healthy, just smaller for her age.

If his size is in between then I feed 2 smaller prey items every other feeding before moving up to a size that is too big right now and wait until he gets bigger.

    But, like any species of an animal, he could just be a runt or late bloomer. I would not be surprised if Anubis has a growth surge these next few years.
    Thatís the thing I got her at petco, so tbh I have no past info

    I wouldnt worry. As long as the snake is healthy and eating, that's all that really matters. Plus boas grow slower than grass. If you want something fast growing, get a retic. Caesar is will be 3 years old this coming May and he is as thick and even longer than Rosey my 6 year old BCI girl who i got when she was about 18 inches. Rosey is 6-7 feet and Caesar is easily 9 feet.

    Sooooo I'm just now following up on this and after finializing some details and moves around the Reptile Room, I've make the decision to go with a A20 AP Enclosure. Gives Anubis enough floor space considering is 4ft long by 2feet wide and the ability to climb becuase its 3 ft tall and has a basking shelf. I'm really stoked to see this come together in the next 4-5 months, So this allows me to really dig into alot of my cultures for making this enclosure bioactive as well and further expand on my knowledge. Any potential insight with going Bio-active with a Boa?

    Sorry bud for getting back so late itís a Pro Heat model PH-12, 340 BTU/h, 100 watt, 12" x 24" x 1" radiant panel I was having problems with the probe placement ton get everything dialed in but figured it out sheís not in yet as the humidity is still 88-90+% on the floor but the shelf has stabilized to 65% and Iím still waiting on finding some large grape wood and or drift wood so she has something to climb. Sheís about 4.5 feet and 1800-2000g so still small for such a large enclosure BUT it will be bioactive so I just need to pick up my top soil and seed my ISOís and springtails and plants, Iím just doing Pothos cause sheís a bulldozer worse then my BPs.
