Red tail boa question

Post  PaytonM on Fri Oct 01, 2010 9:52 pm

Hey everyone Smile I have question abou my RTB, I've been feeding her every 5 days and she's about 10 months old, and she barely looks like she has grown any since then, I'm worried about her growth, any suggestions, it looks like she's not growing to me. Thanks.

Yeah :/ I got a suggestion to feed her 1 mouse then next time I feed her 2 then 1 then 2, and it kind of seems like it's working, not much change though. Worried about her, and she's getting kind of aggressive for no reason. I don't understand. She strikes everytime she gets a chance.

If she's shed and if she's eating, I wouldn't worry.
They have "growth spurts".
Are you feeding her in her cage ?

Then some of that aggression may be: 1.) "Red tail Boa aggression". (Some of them are known for that.) and/or 2.) She's still hungry.

Ok, thank you. I'm going to start feeding her with that new feeding schedule, and what do you mean by red tail boa aggression? :/

Some Red tail Boas can be great pets, but some are not.
(Some may be aggressive all their lives and you just have to learn
to live with it if your going to keep them.)

I would switch to small rats instead of mice I think there better and they're more nutritional then mice. That's just my opinion. And I agree with the aggressive behavior being because of hunger
