Boa Care Sheet Provided by Reptifiles
As part of our partnership, ReptiFiles has prepared scientifically-backed care sheets just for Zen Habitats fans. Boas are nocturnal, which means that they are most active at night. Like other snakes, they are carnivores, and spend most of their waking hours hunting for prey such as birds and small mammals. Get a shopping list and learn more all about terrarium size, lighting, temperature, humidity, substrate, feeding, handling!
Your Healthy Snake
The first step toward keeping your snake healthy, according to Kasey, is to schedule a visit with a veterinarian specializing in exotics within the first couple weeks of them coming home. This will help establish a baseline for your pet and create a relationship with the veterinarian in the event your animal is to ever fall ill. Observing your snake’s behavior, body condition, activity level, skin, shedding, bowel movements, and urination is important to monitor overall health.
