Pregnant or not?
Can someone help me with the tell-tale signs to look for when trying to establish if your boa is pregnant or not. Sally is a 3 year old red-tail.

She will swell up during ovulation (VERY noticeable), she will STOP eating (in most cases) and will not want to be moved especially in later stages. She will deliver (depending on locality) in 6-10 months! Every once in a while they will drop a litter and surprise you... my KSB just did that!

hey Denny,
Did she drop in your Lap :D

DennyS 11-26-2011 02:10 AM

NO she did not...found them in her enclosure. I w=ent to clean the poo out and I picked up a handful of what I thought was poo...then they moved very quickly away!!! and NO, I did not throw any across the room!

If i was the one that found it, i would have poked it :D! if it moved or bite you, it's not poo :D

Nikki if you poke to check for poo then remind me not to have lunch at your house when i visit next year!

NASAAN101 11-27-2011 06:16 AM

I don't mean with your fingers, I meant with a pen :D

So far the 11 babies have not even tried to bite me..very unusual for KSB's. I am waiting fiir that 1st nip.

Hey Denny, send me one of THOSE babies!!! My birthday is in March ;)! Just keep the most laid back one for me lol!!!

Greg Nel 11-28-2011 10:29 AM

Ok Nikki. After the description of your hand feeding i thought you used the hands on approach for poop scooping as well.

NASAAN101 11-29-2011 02:28 AM

Greg Nel 12-03-2011 03:35 PM

Sorry i won't pick on you anymore!

NASAAN101 12-03-2011 10:20 PM

I was teasing! I know were all picking on each other :D

DennyS 12-05-2011 08:59 PM

Hey Denny,
How many are Females????

DennyS 12-11-2011 04:02 PM

What I have left are 1 male and 4 females...

lovesnuffles 12-11-2011 10:15 PM

Lol Denny, are they in a rack? My little snow used to slip through a small crack between the tub and the top of the rack. The tub had the smallest little dip in it and he could squeeze through it!
