alright boa breeders, now is your time to shine.
i was just given two, two day old red tail boas from someone who had an accidental litter and didn’t know how to take care of the babies and needed them gone. ive never owned boas until now, but i have lots of experience with handling and have a pretty good grasp on care. i am aware of what im getting myself into lol
baby one: 59.56 grams, umbilical cord is gone. hasn’t had first shed, but very obviously about to.
baby two: 61.96 grams, umbilical cord is still attached, hasn’t shed but is obviously about to.
I set both babies up in separate 56 quart tubs, paper towel substrate, a regular hide and a humid hide as well. both also have water dishes. trying to keep it basic to keep an eye on health better.
hot side currently reading at 84, but cool side is yet to be determined because i just set these tubs up and im sure adjustments need to be needed.
how is this set up sounding(remember, its very basic and very temporary. just want to ensure they’re healthy)? do they seem like they’re a healthy newborn weight? when should i offer food for the first time and what size? are they picky regarding live or f/t?
both babies are very alert and active. I only handled long enough to weigh them. i can 100% get pictures if need be.
thank you guys in advance!
