Pacific Boa (Candoia carinata) Personal ad9 May - Arboreal Boas/Pythons - Nanaimo, BC
LTC since 2014. Around 31 grams, roughly 18 inches in length. She came to me as an adult from another private keeper in Canada. She uses a humid hide and seems to enjoy soaking in water every now and then as well. She has arboreal tendencies and spends much of her time resting on or climbing through branches, but also regularly uses hide boxes on the ground so I recommend providing her with those in your setup or she may not acclimate well. Moves cautiously but has a fast grab triggered by nearby movement, and will grab pretty much anything that moves within her striking distance. Eagerly takes thawed pinkies or small fuzzy mice from tongs, she will also hunt tiny lizards, geckos and frogs so those can be offered if you have a clean source of them. If she is on a pinky only diet I recommend lightly dusting them with a supplement every fourth feeding or so as pinkies have very little calcium and other minerals. Pickup available in the Comox Valley for no extra cost. Canada-wide shipping through Reptile Express is available to locations they service, weather permitting.
