    2021 0.1 Candoia paulsoni, Solomon Island ground boa, white phase - Inej

    Been scouting for a smaller species of boa for a while and landed on Candoia paulsoni sometime last year, but things didn't line up to acquire one until this month. So without further ado, I introduce Inej.

    Pictures the breeder sent me before shipping:





    And then the ones I've taken since she came home:




    She was born 3/31, and as of today she weighs 12 grams. So small!

    The breeder had her on F/T mouse pinkies for 10 feedings in a row, which sounds fairly promising.

    What an awesome critter. I was looking into these last year but couldnít find one. Iíve heard they can be hard to get going on food but it sounds like yours is pretty well established. Iím really excited to see your critter as it grows. Best wishes!

    Very cool! I like the zipper or rose thorny-like back pattern.

    So tiny. So beautiful. I would call her Thumbelina. But then again, I donít know how big these beauties get.

    They aren't easy to find, and I'm honestly surprised I found her. Was just scrolling through Morph Market, and I next to never do that lately. Too many pretty snakes I can't have, haha. And there she was. The breeder said that she's a "little piggy" when it comes to food; guess I'll find out for myself next week!

    Thank you! I like the ones that have the more uneven pattern down the back as opposed to straight lines. Makes things more visually interesting.

    That's a good one! Males get about 2.5-3 feet. Females can get up to 5 feet, but usually stay under 4. Very similar size-wise to a ball python, seems like.

    Personally, I'd have to call her "Pat"...because I'm old enough to remember comedian Pat Paulsen, & he pops into my brain the minute I read her scientific name, lol.

    Mini-update. Inej shed yesterday. She has yet to eat, but the breeder says that's fairly typical for this species while in shed. I generally don't feed during shed cycles anyways (only I never actually saw her in blue, as I was away), so I'll try offering a little later in the week. She is also so small I felt like I had to use a smaller water bowl. (pictured is the old one for comparison)






    The shed itself is perfect, other than a tear behind the head. Eye caps, nostrils, and tail tip all there.

    She ate today! No pictures, as I've been leaving her alone and keeping things quiet since she shed. Was waiting for her to start exploring (mostly so I could even see her, she's so tiny), and she finally came out tonight! Enthusiastically wrapped and ate two day-old pinky mice.
