Bothrochilus boa coming home in December!

Postby thorrshamri » Sun Aug 05, 2007 7:47 pm

I booked this female for the December Hamm show,she is CB 2006 and I took it from a Dutch breeder-can't wait to have her home!
I'll buy a young male in 2008 as I always keep pairs only,for breeding purposes.She is now about 2'/60cm.

She truly is a lovely, what requirements do they need?

They shun bright lights as they live on forests floors in the Bismarck islands,East of Papua New Guinea.High humidity and temps similar to BCIs,a semi-arboreal viv with a lot of hides and stout branches,they also love to hide under piles of coconut shells during the day.Viv for an adut should be 120x60x60 ,and they eat relatively small prey-namely polynesian rats in their homelands,which are much smaller than normal rats,so they are offered a 80-100 gr rat or jumbo mouse per week.

I can still remember the first time I saw one of these. It was at tony,s old shop before I was working with him. I just could not stop starring, it was a hatchling and still very beautifull.

That is very nice. Now to get them big and breed them is the next challenge.

I have no idea how you can wait for it so long. Is it not possible for him to ship it to you?

Shipping from abroad is risky and I prefer to pick it up myself,that will be less stress for the animal.More,I can't pay the full price now,so that leaves me time to get the full sum of money :lol:
