    Re: Bought a Nicaraguan boa....

    Congrats again on the new boa. It sounds like you're off to a good start. Some boas go through light and dark phases and they can look quite different. It's almost like having two snakes . Looking forward to more pics as he grows.

    Itís funny that you mention it because he shed last night and today he looks MUCH redder than he did yesterday. I have his tank blacked out and he is wedged between his hide and the tank but I can tell he has really lightened up overnight. I would love to get him out and play with him but Iím going to let him rest for the next week.

    Those eyes of his are really freaky when he tracks your movements around the room. My wife has nicknamed him Beelzebub. lol Between him and my albino BPís red eyes she thinks the room is possessed. 🤣

    He is so much redder today that Iíll have to retract that statement about Photoshop. The seller has been 100% honest, helpful, and just plain fantastic to work with and he is everything she said he was and more.

    I have been trying to sell camera equipment on Craigslist and people are trying to scam me left and right. I guess I was just expecting another scam but this has been nothing like that. I highly recommend Jacki @ MBF Reptiles

    Congrats.

    My red tail is fairly consistent, but my BI (Behira - Ghost Morph) goes through light and dark phases throughout the day. Also, as you mentioned, shed will do it too - make them look much darker.

    Please keep us in the loop on his progress and let us know if you have any more questions.

    Good luck!

    Thank you! Right now the only problem I have is he wonít use his hide, he wedges himself between the hide and the tank. The breeder had him in a tub with no hide so I donít think he really realizes what itís for. This is just the first day of ownership so maybe he will catch on.

    I wouldn't worry about it...it's as you said, all new to him. When you get around to handling him, if he hasn't figured it out by then, when you go to put him back in just
    aim his face toward the hide's doorway & most likely he'll catch right on & go in. Can't remember a snake that could resist a dark cave to go into.

    The small RB hide is way to small and the medium is crazy big. Iíll stuff it with some newspaper.

    Feliz and Behira did the same thing when I got them. Lol. Sill do sometimes.

    They learned to use the hides, but remember, Boas are not BPs. They will spend more time in the open usually.
