    After a night of exploring her new digs it seems she approves of her sky hide and has retired there for the daylight hours. Love it

    Re: 2018 0.1 Boa Constrictor Occidentalis, Argentine Boa, Progression

    Seems to be developing a rhythm of sorts post feeding in the larger enclosure. Heís been found on her shelf the last two days during the warmest part of the heating schedule I have programmed. RHP hits its peak basking spot temp (~88į) from 11am-6pm ramping up to and down from the highest temp over a period of 3hrs.
    Has been found in both her floor hides and other floor are, but no higher than the shelf since feeding.
    Only thing she hasnít used yet is the sky hide under the shelf. May guide her into it so sheís aware of it and see if that influences anything.

    Right after I temp gunned her at 88į

    Wow! That pink is AMAZING! She looks fantastic in her new skin brother! Youíre making me a little self conscious about my Argies weight now 😀. Our girls are right about the same age. My girl was born on 6/28/2018 so sheís almost 3. She weighed 1510g about 3 weeks ago. Iím feeding her a medium rat every 2-3 weeks. She doesnít seem overweight at all. She is more round than BI but the BI is the heavier critter. Heís a year older and about 1800g. Are you feeding mostly smalls or mediums?

    Thank you, Ziggy! If anything I'm a bit self conscious about my girl's weight. I feed pretty sparingly and small meals. She's never had a medium rat in her life and has been taking smalls every 10-14-? days. That will change this summer, maybe sooner than planned. I don't really have a schedule per se. I set a frequency of 12 days in my SnakeKeeper app and use that as a rough guideline. Sometimes I add a week and sometimes I'll feed a couple days earlier.

    They can definitely handle a bigger meal than they'd let you think and grow faster than other Boa species from what I can find on that subject. This is even mentioned in The MORE Complete Boa Constrictor about them growing large and more quickly than others.

    She's most definitely rounder than my Pokigron Suriname boy. Your girl doesn't look overweight at all to me either, Zig. Like I've mentioned before, I think I'm just a bit gun shy about feeding frequency and size after feeding the holy bejeezus out of my retics a few years ago to combat their pushing issues. Feeling a bit more comfortable about letting the current critters feast through the summer and then dial it back and fast them through the winter.

    Well, @El-Ziggy, safe to say I underestimated this girl. Just pounded a medium rat and while hard to tell from this angle, it doesnít seem like an outrageous lump by any measure.

    Thatís cool JMC. I didnít think sheíd have any problems with those mediums. You probably wonít see a bump at all in a couple of days.

    Yeah, looked big until it was in her belly. The bump, and itís hard to even call it that, is just before the last 1/3 of her that is coiled up.
