Photos of my Dumerils Boas

Postby rolandslf » Mon Nov 23, 2009 7:23 am

Well, Finally. My Dumerils came back home on Saturday.
My friend had fed them on Friday so I only took a pic of each one in the transportation baskets.
I didn't want to over stress them and risk a regurge.

The Male

The Female whom I suspect to be gravid

Just as a matter of interest, the female is permanently sitting on a 25w heating pad, this heating pad has a large floor tile covering it with a piece of cardboard taped over the tile. A digital thermometer with the probe taped to the cardboard is in the enclosure. The temp stays constant on the heating pad at 31c. Question - Can the female get burnt?

Nice looking boas, I love Dumerils.
That female might be gravid but then again I have been wrong with mine before so you never know. Guess it is wait and see.
I don't think 31c would burn her.

Awesome boa's bud. Can't wait to see them in person. I hope that she is gravid for you. I also don't think 31c would not burn her and I'm sure she will move off and on it at her own leisure. Good luck bud.
