    Iíve got the bug!!!!

    I need help!!! OK not really, but thatís ok. I have a ball python, a few months old. Now that heís outgrown his tank, I REALLY want to get a Brazilian Rainbow Boa. I know thereís some different housing requirements, but I could use support or people telling me Iím nuts. I know my wife will ďobjectĒ but I havenít bought her diamond earrings yet so Iím good there. Please snake lovers help me decide.

    I don't find my BRB difficult at all..... Having a proper cage that holds humidity. Giving a bowl large enough to soak is a must.

    Since heís a baby, heís going to stay in a 20 gallon tank with 2 corner water bowls. I also have a reptile fogger with a thermostat that controls both heat and humidity. Please offer recommendations, Iíve only had pythons, so Iím new to the boa world.

    They love to soak. I would have one bowl large enough to allow it over two smaller ones.

    Go to 1:58 to learn something about Rainbows and Anacondas.
