Thank you, everyone, for the kind words about my boas.

Great looking babies! I honestly can’t decide which are my favourites. I waffle between whether I like the super clean, lighter look of the potential supers, or if I prefer the ones with bigger orange saddles. And those albino motleys are gorgeous too! They’re all beautiful.

Had a few of the babies out today while I was cleaning.

All the albinos are motley, and most are jungles, too.

Good news, all but 3 babies eat today for me. I will leave them overnight in a small container with the pinky mouse. Hopefully, they will eat overnight.

Out of the 15 babies, 5 of them had one or two bulging eye. Some worse than the others.

I know most breeders don’t talk about this stuff. Because some people take it as bad genetics. In reality, most of the time, it’s just an infection.

But it’s a hobby for me, not my way of making a living. Plus, I like helping people out when I can. Some other first-time breeders may need this info in the future.

I have been treating them with Terramycin antibiotic ointment 4 times a day. Got the meds from my veterinarian.

Out of the 5 babies, only 2 babies, have bad eyes, I could not save. They are doing good for me, and both even eat.
The other 3 babies’ eyes are in perfect working shape now.

The two one-eyed babies are one sunglow jungle and one albino motley jungle. I will be giving them away to people who I know will take good care of them.

Fantastic pictures of some very beautiful animals! I’m glad to hear that three recovered from their infection completely. And it’s also great, that the other two at least are eating and should live a healthy life. Thanks for sharing all of that info.

I have been using a mix of cypress mulch and sphagnum moss for my boas now. They seem to like it, but it’s messy.

Just for the little guys, or the adults too?

I use the mix for both / all my boas. I do use big water bowls for the adults with the mix in it. To help keep it contained. But they do make a mess with it. Some more than others. They bo get it in there water bowls. But thats not really a problem as i give fresh water 4 to 5 times a week.
