I just want to share how happy I am!
I adopted a 9 year old red brazilian rainbow boa a while ago. She wasn’t eating, her sheds were terrible and she had an unknown number of stuck eyecaps.
Today she seems healthy.
She sacred the shit out of me last time I fed her by going for her rat like a projectile as soon as I opened the terrarium. A surprising and not before seen behaviour from her, and as I see it a total success. She would be veeeery hard to get to take her pray in the beginning, with a number of failed feeding attempts.
Her last shed was PERFECT, with both eyecaps coming off as well.
I don’t really know any where else I can share how happy I am about this. I have been a terror to this beautiful snake, removing eyecaps, stuck skin and trying a bunch of feeding techniques, and she has been gentle and kind the while time.
