Red-Tailed Boa Tip

The true red-tailed boas, boa constrictors, are from the rainforests of tropical South America. Babies are 14 inches long when they hatch and adults can reach 8 to 11 feet long. These attractive constrictors can be tamed well by repeated gentle handling. However, two people should be present when handling a boa 8 feet or longer. Offer adults pre-killed rabbits and rats every week or every other week. Make certain the caging is escape-proof. These wily critters are very good at seeking out weak spots and pushing against them to make a run from their cages.
