    Re: Denton line longicauda progression

    Looking very nice! As much as I like my boas getting bigger, I kinda miss them being really tiny like this. Super cute when they’re little

    Re: Denton line longicauda progression

    So, there's been a bit of an odd development with Kuzco over the past 24 hours.

    He was perfectly fine and active last night when I had him out for a handling session -- perhaps a little cranky at first since his nap was disturbed, but that's par for the course with him. Today, though, he's been hanging out half-perched on his bars, and his chin/throat is noticeably puffy.







    As you can tell from his gauge, my house got a bit cool and dry last night, though the temperature was still within the acceptable range for longicauda. Humidity has been the real problem -- my heater really dries the air out, and soaking/spraying the moss in his enclosure down hasn't produced lasting rises in humidity -- but he has a humid hide to use, doesn't sit out where/when it's damp, and hasn't had any issues with short-term humidity drops like this in the past.

    I checked for RI symptoms, but I didn't find any glaring ones. I took a look inside his mouth and nothing's amiss there -- ie. no excess mucus or unusual redness -- and the puffy-ness is soft, not hard. There isn't any weezing when he breathes, either. He's not as vibrant as he's been lately and he's a bit lethargic compared to yesterday, but it doesn't seem too dramatic.

    Has anyone ever had something like this set in so quickly? I've heard of some snakes getting slightly puffy ahead of sheds before, but he only shed a month ago. Either way, I'll be contacting a vet tomorrow and possibly bringing him in if things don't resolve or he gets worse.

    Re: Denton line longicauda progression

    Yes, RI's can get bad quickly, but if he doesn't have other symptoms, I would wait on taking him to the vet.

    If other symptoms develop; popping or wheezing, discharge from his mouth/nose, refusing food, etc. then I would take him in ASAP.

    Boas are pretty resilient and tend to get RI's in bad situations compared to some other snakes.

    For example, Yafe, my CP, got an RI from fed ex losing him in the cold. But Carpet's tend to be more susceptible than Boas.

    You've had him for a while and your husbandry seems pretty good. I doubt one night of lower humidity would do it, unless something else is underlying.

    Keep us posted, but IMO, if he hasn't shown other symptoms, a vet visit might do more harm than good right now. Again, if that changes, so does my recommendation.

    Re: Denton line longicauda progression

    Thanks!

    The heat and humidity have admittedly been a problem for a few days. Between the first proper cold snap of the season and the heater running more often, the air in my flat's been a bit cooler and drier than normal since Monday. Running a humidifier hasn't helped all that much with the latter. Given that Kuzco was bright and chipper until her caught a case of the "zoomies" last night during our handling session -- seriously, he hasn't been so active outside of his enclosure for quite some time -- it may be that breathing in all that drier air is what's made him feel unwell.

    For now, I've upped both his heat and the flat's heat, re-dampened his substrate, and put a new cover on part of the screen top to try to better keep some of that heat and humidity in. Hopefully all of that will help him feel a bit better! He was still alert and watching me as I did all of this, so he doesn't seem to be feeling too unwell.

    In the event it's necessary, I was delighted to find that a new exotics-only/specialist vet clinic just opened up less than an hour away! Between that and the surprising number of ARAV-listed vets that are semi-local, I should be able to get Kuzco some proper help in the event he ends up needing it. I'll give him some time to see if he improves on his own, though. Hopefully this ends up being a case of catching something quick and ending it quick.

    More so, I hope it's nothing at all.

    Good luck and keep us posted.
