Soaking Boas

Postby TheVetNurse » Thu Sep 27, 2018 7:08 pm

Hey guys,

I've got a young boa (under two months of age) and I have never seen him soaking before. He is our first Boa and his water bowl is large enough but I never see him in it.
Do you have boas that soak themselves often or is it less common than what I think?

Thanks

Its not unusual for a boa 'not' to soak. You may find him soaking during the shedding cycle. Also if the humidity is high the snake may not soak at all.

Thank you so much. I thought he might just be a bit of an oddball. I would love to catch him soaking though.
